RB Sylvester Mayers Profile
His son, also named Sylvester Mayers, plays running back and defensive back at Glen Allen High School in Virginia.
On Thursday, the younger Mayers worked with the running backs during the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.
"It was a great experience for me. I really enjoyed it," he told CUTigers on Friday afternoon.
The 5-foot-7, 150-pound athlete was grouped with the other top running back prospects that were in for the day.
"I think coach [Tony] Elliott is a great coach," Mayers said. "He had some really good drills. He's a really cool guy, real nice. You can tell he knows what he's talking about."
Mayers and Elliott spoke afterwards.
"When camp was over, I got a chance to talk to him, ask him how everything is going for him. He had a newborn. I was just talking to him about stuff like that," Mayers said.
Having been on the Clemson campus several times before Thursday's camp stop, Mayers was already familiar with the surroundings. But, for him, it's always good to get back to Tigertown.
"Being on Clemson's campus, it was just amazing for me," he said. "Every time I go, it's just a beautiful campus, a beautiful school. The stadium is amazing. Everything is just great there."
Over the weekend, Mayers will camp at Georgia and N.C. State. Later this summer, he'll head to Penn State, Duke, Virginia Tech and Virginia for camps, maybe Vanderbilt, too.
As a freshman at Glen Allen, Mayers scored 12 total touchdowns and had four interceptions. Three of his touchdowns were punt returns and two were returned fumble recoveries.
