Peach State receiver eyeing the Tigers

Just a few weeks after Clemson wrapped up its first Atlantic Division title against Virginia, the Tigers extended an offer to one of the top junior wide receivers in Georgia.

CUTigers caught up with North Paulding (Dallas, Ga.) wide receiver Christian Conley last Sunday during the Scout Showcase in Duluth.

Conley said he'd been receiving information from Clemson for several weeks prior to his first trip to Tigertown. He was one of several 2011 prospects on hand for the senior day win over Virginia.

"It was a great game. I saw the most orange I have in one place," he said. "That was my first time there and it was a good visit."

All the people he met that afternoon, Conley said, were very personable.

"The coaches are good, humble men…the fan-base was great, I think that's what stood out for me," he said.

Offensive coordinator Billy Napier is Conley's main recruiter, though wide receivers coach/recruiting coordinator Jeff Scott also keeps in regular contact.

"The last time they came by, it was about three weeks ago. They came at different times. Coach Scott came by and coach Napier came by afterwards, a couple of days later," Conley said.

Over the past couple of weeks, coaches from Georgia, Georgia Tech, Alabama and Wake Forest have also been by North Paulding to check on his grades and meet with coaches.

This spring and summer, Conley plans to take several visits for junior days.

"I'm still doing visits. I've visited Georgia. I've still go visits scheduled at Clemson, Alabama and Georgia Tech. I'm going to visit those places, if anywhere else pops up, I might go visit there," he said. "Then, I'm going to sit down with my information and make an educated decision."

Alabama is the only school of those four that hasn't offered. Conley also sports offers from: Stanford, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest. His GPA is "about" a 3.6 and is scheduled to take the SAT for the first time this March.

He's not sure how long he'll take to make a decision.

As a junior, Conley had 81 catches for 848 yards and six touchdowns. Top Stories
