TE Rob Gronkowski Profile
The Clemson Tigers could get an unofficial visit from one of the nation's top tight ends as soon as next week.
Rob Gronkowski, a 5-star tight end prospect from the Williamsville, NY area, is currently planning to stop by both Chapel Hill and Clemson on a quick southern tour.
"I am planning to visit Clemson and North Carolina soon," Gronkowski told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I am still working out the details. I may go down between the 10th and 14th with my mom and visit both. If I don't go then it will be with my dad later this month."
When asked about his current favorites in the recruiting process, Gronkowski responded, "I don't really have any. North Carolina, Clemson, Arizona, Ohio State, Maryland and Syracuse are some of the top schools. I plan to narrow it down some before the season."
By the end of the summer, the star tight end will have visited several of the schools showing the most interest. "I camped at Maryland and Syracuse earlier this summer. I am going to also visit Ohio State this month," he said.
The 6-6, 250 pound prospect has been staying in regular touch with Clemson tight ends coach Billy Napier. "Coach Napier has been talking with me a lot. He has just been talking about getting me down for the visit," Gronkowski said.
What about a timeframe on a verbal commitment?
"I am still planning to wait. I will make a decision after my season is over," he added.
As a junior, Gronkowski caught 36 passes for 648 yards and seven touchdowns. He also earned first team All-Western New York and second team All-State honors.
Scout.com currently ranks Gronkowski as the No. 2 tight end prospect in the country. He currently has offers from Clemson, Florida, North Carolina, Syracuse, Arizona and Boston College among others.
