Recently 2016 commits 4-star Roswell High School outside linebacker Tre Lamar (GA) and 3-star Pinecrest High School guard Sean Pollard (Southern Pines, NC) each signed financial aid agreements with Clemson with the intent to enroll a semester early to go through spring practice with the Tigers.

As the Tigers go through preseason practice, Lamar is getting set for his senior season. The linebacker caught up with CUTigers to detail exactly what's been going on of late.

"It's an awesome feeling to sign (the financial aid agreement). We have already started practice, but it's been a process getting used to the heat," said Lamar. "I will be at some Clemson games. And I haven't decided on which practices, but I'll probably get to a couple."

Roswell High has a number of talented prospects that will play major division one football. Outside of Lamar the 2016 class already holds another ACC commit in 3-star outside linebacker Tyrone Hopper who will play at North Carolina. The 2017 class isn't short on talent either. 4-star cornerback LeAnthony Williams and unranked safety Xavier McKinney each hold offers from Clemson and Lamar has been in their ears about potentially heading to Tigertown as well.

"I've been doing my part to tell them how great a place Clemson is, but right now they are just trying to visit each of the schools and get a feel for each one," he said

Lamar is happy to be done with his recruitment and is concentrated on finishing high school strong.

"It feels great. It really allows me to going into my senior season. The team is looking good this year, and I anticipate us going deep in the playoffs." Lamar continued saying, "I want to improve my pass drops, and that will help me become a three-down linebacker."

Lamar concluded our conversation evaluating his future teammates and the 2015 Clemson season.

"I think this will be a great year for them with all their talent. I will be there for some games, but I haven't chosen them yet."

The 2016 linebacker is 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds. Lamar has been rated by Scout as the No. 258 prospect in the country and as the No. 2 outside linebacker in Georgia. He's been timed at 4.76 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
