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."

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.
