Clemson Extends Offer to 4-Star 2018 Safety Atanza Vongor

The Clemson staff has been poaching Texas in recent months, extending as many as five offers to some of the best the Lone Star State has to offer.

CUTigers reached out to 4-star safety Atanza Vongor, the latest of five Texas prospects to receive offers from the Clemson staff for either the 2017 or 2018 class.

CUTigers:  Tell us about the recent Clemson offer and how that was conveyed. Which coach gave you the offer?
Vongor:  It was great! Coach Mike Reed came out to my spring practice on Friday. I got a chance to meet with him, and he was able to see me play. We were also able to talk on the phone as well. 

CUTigers:  Do you plan on making a visit to Clemson anytime soon, for camp or for a tour of campus?
Vongor:  In regards to visiting, Coach Reed is working on getting up me there. I'd love to go visit, but there are no finalized visiting plans yet.

CUTigers:  What was Coach Reed telling you about the position you are being offered to play at Clemson?
Vongor:  We weren't able to talk too much about my safety spot, but I'll be calling him later on today and we'll talk on that a little bit.

CUTigers:  What are your initial thoughts on the Tigers and Coach Reed?
Vongor:  Clemson is a great program.  Coach Reed made a great first impression for the coaching staff. Seems like they really care about their players. The football team is great and defense makes plays!

CUTigers:  What player(s) would you say you particularly model your game after?
Vongor:  I like to model my game a little off of Landon Collins, Jalen Ramsey and Cam Chancellor.
