Tre Lamar, a sophomore at Roswell High School, was the recipient of that tender.

"I never got it personally from the coach -- coach Venables -- before I got down there, so that was the first time they told me that I had an offer," Lamar told CUTigers, during a recent interview.

How did Venables pass along the news?

"Coach Venables came to me and said, ‘We have [scholarship] money for you here at Clemson. We're offering you a scholarship to come here.'"

Lamar and Venables had a rather lengthy conversation.

"He told me that I could have an opportunity to play my first year, which was a really big thing for me," Lamar said. "That's probably what stuck with me the most."

Auburn and South Carolina have also offered.

"Clemson was the first school I talked to. They were the first ones that came to me, which I thought was great," Lamar said.

The Junior Day visit was his first trip to Clemson.

"I like the campus a lot. I liked the tour. It was real nice," he said.

The football facilities also impressed him.

"I do really like it. We got to walk inside the facility where they tutor the players. I like everything about it really," Lamar said.

Overall, the trip made a very good impression on Lamar, who will take his first visit to South Carolina in April.

"I mean, it's early, but I like Clemson a lot after that trip," he said. Top Stories
