Clemson’s staff reached into the state of Pennsylvania and laid out an offer to Nazareth 2018 WR prospect Jahan Dotson this week. Jahan is a solid 5’11 and 160-pound slot receiver that has blown up on the Power Five radars across the eastern seaboard and beyond.
With over 1,179 yards on 66 receptions that led to 16 touchdowns last season, he has opened the eyes of so many recruiters in the area that his offer list has expanded to include the likes of Clemson, Auburn, Georgia, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, Ole Miss, UNC, Penn St, Rutgers, Temple, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
Also, the inside word is that Jahan is transferring to current 2017 Clemson OL commit Noah DeHond's high school in New Jersey. DeHond has been actively recruiting potential Clemson classmates, so being around the mauler from Jersey could only mean more exposure to the Tigers for Dotson.
It's very noteworthy these days when an offer from "WRU" comes along. Clemson has been home to several of the most accomplished wide receivers over the past five years, and they only extend WR offers to the cream of the crop, so this one definitely made news locally and stuck out to Dotson. He took the time to do a quick Q&A with us to give us his thoughts.
CUTigers: Tell us your thoughts on the recent offer the Tigers sent out to you.
JD: “The Clemson offer is huge. Clemson is such a great school and has such a great program.“
CUTigers: What intrigues you most about "WRU?"
JD: “What intrigues me the most is the amount of success they have had at the WR position.“
CUTigers: Do you have a date set for a visit to Clemson yet?
JD: “I don't have anything planned yet but definitely gonna get down there.”
CUTigers: Do you have a list of favorite schools yet?
JD: “I don't have any favorites.“
CUTigers: Is there a player out there you tend to model your game after?
JD: "I don't really try to model my game after anyone. I'm trying to create something new and one day have people say they wanna play like me.”
