Looking ahead to 2015: TE

Now that the regular season is done, the Clemson staff is tying up a few loose ends with the 2014 signing class, and they're also looking ahead to 2015.

Six 2015 prospects are already on board as commitments to the Tigers' 2015 class. Four-star outside linebacker Tanner Muse is the highest rated prospect in the group. Safety Van Smith is also a four-star. Brothers, J.D. Davis and Judah Davis, are down as three-star outside linebackers. There's also a pair of three-stars on the offensive side of the ball: wide receiver Shadell Bell and offensive tackle Noah Green.

But there are several other available spots for 2015. In this series, we're taking a position-by-position look at the junior prospects to keep an eye on as the focus begins to shift towards that haul.


Danny Pearman expects to welcome back several tight ends to his meeting room next season: Sam Cooper, Stanton Seckinger, Jay Jay McCullough, Jordan Leggett and D.J. Greenlee.

Cooper will be the only senior in 2014 and Seckinger will be the lone senior during in the 2015 season.

Clemson has a pair of tight ends committed to the 2014 signing class: Milan Richard and Cannon Smith. They'll probably add just one more in 2015.

Here are some class of 2015 names to keep an eye on over the next several months.

Jackson Harris, Columbia Central High School - Columbia, Tenn.
The No. 10 tight end in the class of 2015, Harris took his first visit to Clemson in September for the Boston College game, and he gave the visit high marks.

In addition to Clemson, Harris has offers from Florida State, Georgia, Louisville and Mississippi State.

Harrison Moon, Signal Mountain High School - Signal Mountain, Tenn.
Moon, who camped at Clemson over the summer, spent time with both the tight end and offensive tackle groups. If Clemson was to move in with an offer for Moon, there's a really good chance that it will be as an offensive tackle.

The three-star prospect has offers from Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech and UT-Chattanooga.

Tavin Richardson, Byrnes High School - Duncan
Listed at 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, Richardson is finally classified as a tight end in the Scout.com database. He's picked up several out-of-state offers over the last couple of months: Arkansas, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Miami, Ole Miss, Pitt and Virginia Tech.

Garrett Williams, The First Academy - Orlando, Fla.
Williams has visited Clemson three times this year, and he considers the Tigers among his group of favorites. Florida State and Tennessee are also in contention.

A four-star, Williams is ranked by Scout.com as the No. 8 tight end in the country. His other offers include Florida, Louisville, Ole Miss, UNC and Ohio State.
