WR Carlos Strickland Profile
He was spoke with four-star Carlos Strickland of Dallas' Skyline High School. It was the first conversation between the coach and prospect.
That's when Morris let it be known that Strickland, who's ranked by Scout.com as the No. 10 wide receiver in the country, had a Clemson offer.
"I just called [Morris] and he told me how they really wanted me to come down and visit, come to the school," Strickland told CUTigers over the weekend.
Scout.com national recruiting analyst Greg Powers said, "Strickland is the tall and wiry wide receiver who always seems to be open. He runs clean routes and then uses his size and reach to make sure catches."
Strickland is listed at 6-4, 195.
"That's basically what they were telling me, that I would be a perfect fit," he said of his conversation with Morris. "They don't have many big receivers like me, so I would be a hard matchup for opponents."
Clemson joins a number of nationally recognized programs on Strickland's offer sheet, including Alabama, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma State and UCLA.
He's still learning about some details about the Tigers' program, but does have an understanding of what they've got going on.
"I know they're winning a lot of games," Strickland said. "They're competing every year for the [ACC] championship and, also, they're putting people in the NFL, which is the ultimate goal."
The interest is mutual.
"I want to visit sometime, but I'm not sure exactly when. But I do want to go down there and visit, for sure," Strickland said.
As a junior, he caught 40 passes for over 800 yards and 10 touchdowns.
