Austin Seferian-Jenkins Profile
Before he was able to send his junior film, the Scout.com 2011 four star tight end heard from the Tiger coaching staff.
He picked up the offer from Tigertown one Monday when he called recruiting coordinator Jeff Scott, who'd sent an e-mail to Seferian-Jenkins' mother, saying he want to talk to her son.
Seferian-Jenkins didn't get the message until Sunday night when it was a little too late for a phone call to the East Coast.
"I called him in the morning around 10, his time," Seferian-Jenkins said. "He told me, ‘Still send your junior highlight tape, but you have an offer for a full scholarship to Clemson'."
The names C.J. Spiller, James Davis and Charlie Whitehurst have helped Clemson's "really big-time offense" catch his eye.
"I like Clemson and what they do. I really want to go down there and visit too," Seferian-Jenkins said.
With grandparents who live in North Carolina, he usually travels to see them in New Bern in the late spring or early summer--that's when he'll see Clemson's campus for the first time.
Clemson joins the laundry list of other offers that includes: Florida, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Miami, Florida, BYU, Vanderbilt, Boise State and the entire Pac-10 Conference, except for USC.
Seferian-Jenkins has been on unofficial visits to several games this season at near-by Washington. He visited Oregon this past weekend.
"I'm just going through the whole recruiting process. I'm not going to make any commitment until Signing Day," he said. "I know I have lots of time. I'm going to enjoy myself and enjoy the recruiting process. I'm going to enjoy being a high school kid and I'll go from there."
As a junior, Seferian-Jenkins had 63 receptions, 1,060 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns. As a sophomore, he had 15 for 300 yards and three touchdowns.
He's playing basketball this winter--another potential college option for the 6-7 245 pound athlete.
"If I go to the University of Washington, I could play both there and if I go to Washington State and Arizona State," Seferian-Jenkins said. "Washington said I'd have a spot on the team and (Washington State) too."
In addition to a Clemson trip when he travels to see his grandparents, he'll visit: North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Georgia. During spring break in April, he'll go to Florida, Miami, South Florida and Florida State.
