The beginning of football season is just more than two months away, but the recruiting season never ends.

With recruiting visits, scholarship offers and commitments the Tigers’ staff is looking to maintain a positive feel around the program despite some negative news as of late.

This past weekend Clemson saw a familiar face come to town, along with a new visitor. 2017 4-star defensive end Malik Herring (Forsyth, GA) from Mary Persons High School got another look at the school and spoke with CUTigers to update his recruitment.

“Me and Jaden Hunter (came to Clemson).” Hunter is a 4-star outside linebacker from Westlake High School in Atlanta, Georgia. Herring continued saying, “I liked it. That was (Hunter’s) first time there. We toured the campus, facility and academic building. I really like the academic building.”

Herring spoke a lot about the academic culture surrounding Clemson as he saw it over the weekend. “I noticed that they stay on their student-athletes to be successful in the classroom, and not just the playing field. I probably want to major in Sports Management,” explained Herring.

He also took some time to update CUTigers on what his summer is going to look like before football starts in the fall. “I’m going to visit Florida State, Georgia, LSU and hopefully Auburn and Florida,” said Herring. “I’m probably going to wait until Signing Day to commit. I’m just trying to make sure the school is a good fit for me.”

Herring stands at an impressive 6-foot-3, 253 pounds and has been clocked at 5.28 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
