Clemson offers Maryland CB

At the end of Clemson's work out on the recruiting trail during the May evaluation period, defensive backs coach Mike Reed sent out a new offer.

On Friday, Reed offered Quince Orchard High School [Gaithersburg, Md.] junior cornerback Elliott Davis.

"He came to my school and talked to my coach. Next thing I know, he said he was going to offer me. That's pretty much how it happened," Davis told CUTigers over the weekend.

The two have been in contact, but only briefly.

"I added him on Facebook a couple of days before he came to offer me," Davis said. "I've yet to really talk to him. I spoke to him when he came to my school. I'll call him [Sunday] or [Monday]. I'll definitely speak to him soon."

Clemson is the first FBS level offer for Davis. Towson and West Virginia Wesleyan have also sent offers to the 6-foot-1, 165-pound prospect.

The Tigers' offer was extra special, but not just because it came from a BCS school.

"It meant a lot. I can't really put in words how much it meant. It was an awesome moment…it meant the world to me, honestly," he said. "It's actually my No. 1 school, because my entire family is from South Carolina. That's where I want to go. That's where they want to be. They'll be able to come to my games. I'll have family down there while I'm in school."

Davis plans to visit Clemson later this summer, but he's yet to set up a date. That could be arranged when he speaks with Reed.

Aside from the Clemson trip, Davis wants to camp at Georgia and Maryland.

As a junior, he had 400 yards receiving, a 60-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown and two interceptions. Top Stories
