Priority OT recaps Junior Day

The Clemson coaches have put a priority on signing offensive tackles in the 2015 recruiting class, so it's no wonder there were so many in town earlier this month.

Among the offensive tackles to stop by for Clemson's Elite Junior Day was Sprayberry High School [Marietta, Ga.] three-starBailey Sharp.

"That was really cool, just kind of seeing all the insides of Clemson's football facilities was really nice," Sharp told CUTigers, during a recent interview.

Sharp picked up the Clemson offer went head coach Dabo Swinney and defensive coordinator Brent Venables stopped by the school last month.

"It was one of those offers where you were just like, ‘Oh, my gosh, that's a cool one,'" Sharp said.

Duke, East Carolina, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, UNC, South Carolina and Virginia have also offered Sharp, who's ranked by Scout.com as the No. 39 ranked offensive tackle in the country.

What was the message from the Tigers' coaches when he was with them in Clemson?

"They were just saying how they recruiting hard at tackle. They showed me their depth chart of the o-line and they don't have great depth at the tackles."

Who leads?

"It's still pretty early."

Sharp is going to consider three factors as he works towards that decision.

"Just a good education, I want a good degree for after football and after college. I want to meet good people through the college life and I want to play for a good team as well," he said.
