LB Tre Lamar Profile

4-star linebacker Tre Lamar (Roswell HS) is headed back to a place he's very familiar with this weekend - Tigertown, USA. The linebacker tells CUTigers Wednesday that he has really enjoyed his visits to Clemson thus far and he's looking forward to Junior Day this weekend.

"I've been to Clemson three times so far," said Lamar. "The South Carolina game really stands out. The atmosphere that day was crazy."

On Lamar's perception of the Tiger coaching staff and defensive philosophy, he replied, "I've developed a pretty good relationship with Coach Venables. I like that the defense is set up for the linebackers to make tackles."

As a junior, Lamar is already a physical threat on the gridiron standing at 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds. He pointed out his athletic ability saying, "I'm a big linebacker, but I can move well. I can get sideline to sideline."

When it comes to what he's looking for in the recruiting process, the football field is not the only thing Lamar is looking at. When thinking ahead to a major, Lamar says, "Right now I'm looking at civil engineering. That's obviously a plus for Clemson."

In the meantime, the offers keep rolling in for the 2016 linebacker. "I got an offer from Notre Dame today," said Lamar.

Despite the big offer, Lamar seemed used to the attention. He offered his top five, and the Fighting Irish were nowhere to be found.

"In no particular order," he narrowed his list to "Clemson, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Alabama and South Carolina."

Looking at Clemson's current recruiting class, Lamar could easily see something special being built at Clemson saying, "I definitely do. I think they're on the up-hill."

Lamar views himself as an asset from the beginning, wherever he may end up at school.

"I want to make an impact early and get playing time," said the linebacker.

Lamar will get his fourth look at Clemson this Saturday and said, "It feels comfortable. I could see myself going there."

Tre Lamar is rated as the 25th best outside linebacker in the nation and the second best outsider linebacker in the state of Georgia.
