Clemson Prospects Yetur Matos and George Brown Experience Death Valley

CUTigers Recruiting Analyst Gary McDaniel caught up with Clemson prospects DE Yetur Matos and DT George Brown to get their impressions of the Boston College game in Death Valley.

 


 2017 DE Yetur Matos and teammate and 2017 DT George Brown speaking with Clemson University President Jim Clements.

 

Looking at last weekend's visitor list for the Boston College game, you see a small but very top-heavy list of prospects that made their way to Clemson’s Death Valley to see the Tigers take on the Eagles from Boston College.

 

Headlining that list was 2017 DE Yetur Matos of Fredericksburg, VA.  He's a prospect that had the staff’s attention from the moment he arrived back on campus for now his third trip to Clemson. He was in attendance at the Dabo Swinney camp back in June and made a return trip before the season started. Yetur made his third trip to Tigertown to take in his first game day experience here at Clemson’s Memorial Stadium. 

 

I had the time to speak with Yetur and his 2017 classmate, DT George Brown, who made the trip down with Yetur. Brown is getting some attention of his own, with interest coming from several Power Five schools. I have included a short Q&A with George as well.
