Sophomore ATH sees Clemson

Not long into his sophomore season, this North Carolina athlete added a Clemson offer. He visited Tigertown not long after the news came his way.

QB Chazz Surratt Profile

East Lincoln High School [Denver] quarterback Chazz Surratt could stay at that position when he moves on to the next level. Wide receiver is also an option.

While Clemson hasn't specified which position they would like him to play, the 6-foot-2, 200-pound prospect has told CUTigers in the past that he prefers quarterback.

Surratt visited Clemson for the Florida State game.

"It was great. I got to meet the coaches for the first time. It was a good game -- before the game -- until it got to be a blowout," he said. "It was nice. It was really nice down there. The coaches were really nice to me. It was a great atmosphere to be around. It was exciting."

Surratt met with defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks, who serves as his primary recruiter to Clemson. It was Brooks who passed along the news of the offer.

"He just asked me how I was doing," Surratt said, when asked about their pre-game conversation. "It was just being real friendly and stuff. I was supposed to meet coach [Chad] Morris before the game, but I couldn't meet with him. They wanted me to sit down with him, but I couldn't get to him in time. He had to start preparing for the game."

Graduate assistant Joe Craddock has also played a role in Surratt's recruitment. They spoke.

"He was nice. Said I've looked good, asked me how I was doing and asking me about my season," Surratt said.

Along with the visit to Clemson, he's been to UNC and N.C. State. Both schools have offered and indicated his future could be at quarterback.

As a freshman, Surratt totaled 1,800 yards and 20 touchdowns [passing, rushing and receiving]. He passed for 400 yards and five touchdowns. Top Stories
