WR Jarmon Fortson Profile

6-3, 222 pound wide receiver prospect Jarmon Fortson visited Clemson on Saturday for Junior Day.

"It was nice," he said. "I really liked the campus. I like how it is a nice little town. It is a good college town."

Clemson worked the talented junior with two of its best recruiters during the visit.

"I talked to coach Swinney and coach Napier. Coach Swinney told me about the receiver position and how he coaches it," said Fortson.

The two-way standout could play several positions in college, but the Tigers may want him as a defender.

"Coach Napier talked to me about coming up there to play a little defense," said Fortson. "He talked to me about outside linebacker. I played linebacker in 9th and 10th grade."

What did the prize recruit like the most about his visit to Tigertown?

"I liked the campus," he said. "I also really liked the coaches. I liked the hospitality. Everyone took good care of us. They showed us the WestZone. The are still rebuilding that. If me and Deron decide to come it will be state of the art."

The emphasis on academics at Clemson also impressed the Carver High standout.

"The academics really impressed me. I like how they say you are a student first and then an athlete," said Fortson.

The Georgia standout did not leave Clemson with an offer, but he expects the Tigers to offer.

"Coach Napier said he wanted to look at my transcripts. He said he was positive they would offer, but he just wanted to see those. He said he will visit the school and get all of that info."

Fortson's teammate Deron Furr told CUTigers.com he was ready to commit after making the visit, once Clemson offers. Is Jarmon ready to commit to the Tigers as well?

"Well he brought his mom with him. I really liked it, but I would like my mom to come up and see it as well before I would make a decision," replied Fortson.
