Tigers Take Lead

A visit to Clemson on Saturday has moved the Tigers out front for one of the top juniors in North Carolina. CUTigers.com has all the details in this recruiting update.

6-3, 250 pound Tyler Shatley traveled to Clemson on Saturday to learn more about what the Tigers have to offer.

"I really enjoyed it," he said. "It was really nice. It was nice to get to see the dorms and everything. We got to meet with some of the coaches and see the weight room," said Shatley.

Several Clemson coaches spent time with the East Burke standout during the visit.

"Coach Napier took us around and showed us everything. We got to meet with coach Bowden. It was good. Coach Bowden just said he want me to come down to Clemson. He told me to keep working hard," said Shatley.

What was the highlight of the visit?

"I got to go over to the hill where the players run down into the stadium. It would be awesome to be able to run down that hill in front of 80,000 fans," replied Shatley.

Tyler's parents liked what they saw at Clemson, especially the academic support programs.

"They liked it. We went by and talked to the guy in charge of Vickery Hall. They enjoyed that," said Shatley.

A longtime Tiger commitment happened to be at Clemson and spent some time with Shatley during the visit.

"I saw one or two of players while I was there. I also got to see J.K. Jay. We went out and ate. I got to talk with him for a little bit," said Shatley.

The trip to Tigertown helped the Tigers chances with the two-way standout.

"I think it helped a good bit. It let me know what kind of school Clemson is. I got to see everything," said Shatley.

When asked about his current leader, Shatley responded, "It would probably be Clemson right now."
