TE/DE Tyler Shatley Profile
6-3, 255 pound prospect Tyler Shatley will take an unofficial visit to Clemson on Saturday.
"I am going to Clemson on Saturday," Shatley told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I am going down with my mom and dad. I look forward to the trip."
Last fall Shatley visited Death Valley a few times to watch the Tigers.
"I went to a couple of games this year. I enjoyed it. It was fun," said Shatley. "I also went to games at State and Tennessee last year."
The bruising fullback already has two ACC offers to his credit.
"I have offers from Clemson and State," said Shatley. "I'm looking at both schools right now but I'm keeping my options open. I'm probably not making an early commitment or anything."
What position do the Tigers and Pack want the two-way standout to play?
"I am not real sure what position they want me for. Somewhere on the line. I could play tight end or defensive end," replied Shatley.
Tyler hopes to see learn more about the university during his visit to Tigertown.
"I just want to go look around school. I want to see how the campus is. I want to check on the academics," said Shatley.
What will be important to the East Burke (N.C.) standout?
"I want to major in engineering. I am looking for a school with a good engineering program. I am not really looking for early playing time. A redshirt year would be fine because that will help me get my degree," replied Shatley.
Don't look for an early commitment from the talented junior.
"I want to check some places out before I make any decision. It is not going to be any time real soon," said Shatley.
As a junior, Shatley rushed 213 times for 1,209 yards and 18 touchdowns as a junior for East Burke High School.
Also a standout wrestler, Shatley went undefeated last year in 31 matches.
