2012 WR has Clemson offer

Clemson reeled in one First Coast High Schools prospect in the 2010 class and now the Tigers have their sights set on a 2012 wide receiver that's already picked up several verbal offers.

Clemson recruiting coordinator/wide receivers coach Jeff Scott extended a verbal offer to First Coast High School wide receiver Chris Black last fall.

"He talked to my dad. It was over the phone," Black recently told CUTigers.

Florida State, South Carolina and Georgia have all extended verbal offers.

"First was South Carolina. That was in the summer of last year when I was at one of their camps," he said.

"Getting these offers, that's all good. I just have to remember to keep my head on straight and play the game."

Defensive tackle Tavaris Barnes, who signed with Clemson in February, has told Black what he likes about the Tigers.

"He basically just says that he likes the school itself," Black said.

This spring, he's visited Florida State for Junior Day. He plans to head back to Tallahassee and could be making a trip to Georgia.

A trip to Tigertown could be in the works too.

"Clemson wants me to come up there and take a look," he said.

Right now, Florida State leads, though it's still very early in the process. Black's yet to decide when he'd commit.

"It all depends on whatever school is showing me the most interest and whatever school likes me as a player," he said. "I want to go somewhere where I can get in and play early."

As a sophomore, Black scored seven touchdowns, one of which was a 94-yard kickoff return.
