ATH Justin Trapp Profile
Justin Trapp came to the Shrine Bowl last week to show that he can excel at a new position, and after Saturday's performance he left little doubt that's exactly what he could.
"It was fun. I think I had four catches for 70 something yards," Trapp told CUTigers.com earlier this week.
The talented athlete played quarterback this season, but showed during the Shrine Bowl that he can easily transition to receiver.
"Clemson wants me to play the slot. It wasn't a hard transition for me. I am just an athlete. I just want the ball in my hands," said Trapp.
Clemson assistant coach Andrew Powell is recruiting, but as of Christmas Eve the Tigers have yet to offer.
"Coach Powell is recruiting me for Clemson. They had my tape about two weeks ago. They have asked me to come in for a visit," said Trapp.
Will the Tigers get an official visit?
"Yes, I will be going to Clemson on January 23," replied Trapp. "I also have visits planned for Vanderbilt and Coastal Carolina."
Which other schools are recruiting the two-sport standout for football?
"I have offers from Vanderbilt, Coastal Carolina and Presbyterian," replied Trapp.
If the Tigers come forward with an offer would the Shrine Bowl standout quickly commit to the Tigers?
"I would really have to wait. I am trying to get a scholarship to play both. I would like to get that from Clemson. I have a double offer right now from Coastal and Presbyterian. If Clemson offers just for football I would wait it out," replied Trapp.
Baseball is Justin's first love and he is likely to be drafted this year.
"Baseball is my No. 1. That comes before football," said Trapp.
What would he do if he gets drafted for baseball?
"I was going to try to play football in college and maybe baseball in the minors. If the right school offers in both I would probably go to school," replied Trapp.
