As the summer wears on, Clemson’s coaching staff is looking to add some pieces to its nine-man recruiting class. Currently, the Tigers hold seven offensive commitments and only two defensive commitments.

4-star defensive end Rahshaun Smith (Bradenton, FL) and 3-star linebacker James Skalski (Newnan, GA) have been committed to Clemson for some time. In the meantime, Dabo Swinney and company are making a push to add another big defensive prospect.

4-star Roswell High School outside linebacker Tre Lamar (Roswell, GA) is scheduled to make a commitment in the near future and will get one last look at Clemson before his decision is announced. Lamar spoke with CUTigers to update what his schedule looks like.

“I don’t have a specific date,” said Lamar. “But I’m probably going to commit sometime in July or August – before the season.”

Lamar is scheduled to visit Clemson for the Dabo Swinney All-In Cookout in a couple of weeks for one last stop in Tigertown before his commitment.

“I’ll be in Clemson the 17th,” continued Lamar. “I don’t have any visits planned after Clemson, yet.”

Lamar has enjoyed his recruiting process with Clemson and is excited for the opportunity to talk to more people at the cookout.

“I just expect to see a different aspect of seeing the coaches outside a football scene,” he explained. “I talk with Coach (Brent) Venables and Coach (Tony) Elliot pretty regularly. I do want to talk to some of the other recruits more. I don’t know if they’ll be there, but people like TJ Chase and James Skalski – I have met him before.”

As Lamar closes down his recruitment, his final three schools are Alabama, Auburn and Clemson.

“This is the top three I’m going into my decision with,” finalized Lamar. “Clemson has a very comfortable feel to it, Auburn develops players well and Alabama has a great winning tradition.”

Lamar is 6-foot-3, 230 pounds and is rated as the 20th outside linebacker in the country by Scout also has him listed as the No. 2 OLB in Georgia for the 2016 class. Lamar has been timed at 4.76 seconds in the 40-yard dash. Top Stories
