OT Nathan Gilliam Profile
Among the candidates is Nathan Gilliam, a three-star offensive tackle from Farragut High School in Knoxville, Tenn.
The 6-foot-5, 275-pound prospect visited Clemson late last month.
"They actually had a coaching clinic that day, so I only saw coach [Dan] Brooks for about five minutes, but I talked to coach [Robbie] Caldwell and, of course, [Dabo Swinney]," Gilliam told CUTigers, during a recent interview.
"Then, I toured the campus, got to see what Clemson is all about. It was my first time on campus ever, so I got to find out with Clemson is. I got a picture next to Howard's Rock."
Gilliam has offers from South Carolina, Kentucky, Mississippi State and Wake Forest. The Gamecocks offered a day after he was in Clemson. The Tigers could offer later this year.
"The one thing they told me is, ‘We want you at camp.' Because my whole film is run blocking, so it's hard to get some good pass blocking film, so they really want to see me at camp," Gilliam said.
Clemson views Gilliam as a tackle.
"They want to bring in around three or four guys…most schools want me at tackle," he said.
Wake Forest hosted Gilliam for a visit last weekend. This weekend, he'll see Tennessee, A week later, he'll head to Virginia.
