Clemson has gotten an early start on its 2016 recruiting class with eight commitments. The Tigers expect to continue building what is sure to be another highly rated class.

As the 2016 class continues to grow, Dabo Swinney and his staff are working on the beginning pieces of the 2017 class.

Clemson does not have any commitments for 2017 right now, but several recruits are taking note of the Tigers early on.

4-star Lake Marion High School sophomore safety Davondre Robinson (Holly Hill, SC) is one of the prospects with possession of a scholarship offer from Clemson. Robinson spoke with CUTigers to update his recruitment.

It's been a while since Robinson has been to Clemson, but he likes what he's seen so far. "Not since junior day, but they keep in contact with me," said Robinson. "It was nice. I like the campus."

Robinson does not yet have an official list of top schools but has offers from Clemson, Georgia, Louisville, North Carolina, South Carolina and Wake Forest. Despite not claiming any favorites, Robinson has an eye on what will make a school the best for him.

"I look at the academics, how they would treat me if I get hurt and if they could help me get a job after I'm done playing football," he said.

Already boasting an impressive list of offers, Robinson is hearing a lot from an additional school. "Georgia, Clemson and Penn State are showing real strong interest in me," said the safety.

Robinson explained what best contributes to his abilities on the field by saying, "My best skill set is that I'm an all-around safety. I'm a ballhawk. I can break on the ball very well, cover like a corner and come lay the wood in run support."

Even though he's an in-state prospect, Robinson has not had many opportunities to see the Tigers live.

"I went when they played Georgia my ninth grade year. It was a great experience. The atmosphere was nice," he added.

As Robinson closes out his sophomore year, he noted what his team wants to accomplish in 2015 by saying, "We want to be undefeated and win state. I want to make all-state and improve on being a leader."

Robinson is 6-feet tall, weighs 189 pounds and has been timed at 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
