Tigers Offer Prochak

A call from Clemson assistant coach/recruiting coordinator David Blackwell changed the spirits at the Prochak household tonight. CUTigers.com has all the details in this recruiting update.

The 6-4, 210 pound athlete received a telephone call that he had been waiting for all season long Monday evening.

"Coach Blackwell called just a little over two hours ago. He was short and simple. He told me I had an offer. He said they offered me as an athlete. He said they had a recruiting meeting today and said several of the coaches spoke up and said they would like me," Prochak told CUTigers.com Monday evening.

"We are all thrilled. I just got off my cell phone. I think it is dead now. I called everybody I know to give them the news. It was especially exciting to get the offer because it is someone that I am so interested in."

What position would the Spartanburg High quarterback play for the Tigers? "Coach Blackwell didn't really say. I know they have talked about outside linebacker, tight end and possibly safety. I just want to play. I don't care which position," Prochak said.

The Shrine Bowl prospect has thought about making a verbal commitment, but as of right now, he is planning to wait until he takes his official visit.

"I have thought a little bit about that. I am really soaking it in right now that the opportunity has presented itself," he said. "I am very interested in Clemson, but as far as making a commitment I am going to wait and see. I want to go on the official visit I have in setup in January. As much as I like the football program and the coaching staff, I want to see how I fit in at Clemson as a student."

Several other scholarship offers could be coming over the next few weeks for the talented athlete. "Carolina is recruiting me pretty hard. Maryland and Vanderbilt are also showing a lot of interest," Prochak said.

The Palmetto standout has been through an emotional rollercoaster the past few days as his season ended in a heartbreaking defeat Friday night. "Yeah we lost in the second round of the playoffs by two points to Gaffney. We had just intercepted the ball in the inside and ran it out inside the five. I fumbled the ball as we were trying to run the clock out and Gaffney was able to score. Then I went to watch the game Saturday night and root on both teams. I was happy to see Clemson win," Prochak added.
