CB J.K. Britt Profile

It was the first visit to Clemson for Newnan High School junior athlete J.K. Britt.

"I liked it a lot. I really enjoyed it. I liked all of the facilities. Everybody was nice to me," he told CUTigers on Sunday.

Britt had a full day in Tigertown.

"I saw the academic setup, visited the locker room, weight room, all of the football facilities, the indoor facility [and] watched the scrimmage," he said.


J.K. Britt has offers from Clemson, Virgina Tech, Duke and Marshall.
What was the message from the coaches?

"The coaches wanted to let me know it's a committable offer, because they don't have to worry about my grades."

Defensive backs coach Mike Reed, who serves as Britt's primary recruiter to for the Tigers, offered Britt during the spring evaluation period.

"He said he likes the way I play on the field. He likes the way I explode into plays, the way I play hard every play," Britt said.

Clemson likes him as a cornerback, so do Virginia Tech and Duke. Marshall has offered Britt as a running back.

"I'm still waiting for more [offers]," he said. "I want to be committed going into my senior season…right now, I would say Clemson is No. 1 out of the schools that have offered me."

This summer, Britt has also visited Alabama, Georgia, Auburn and UCLA. He'll return to Clemson for the Georgia game later this month.

As a sophomore, Britt rushed 83 times for 551 yards and four touchdowns. He also caught 26 passes for 271 yards and three scores. On the defensive side of the ball, Britt had 13 tackles.

Britt is on track to graduate early from Newnan.
