WR Charone Peake Profile
The Dorman High School (Roebuck) receiver enjoyed the three days of sessions with wide receivers coach/recruiting coordinator, offensive coordinator Billy Napier and head coach Dabo Swinney.
After the trip that started Wednesday and ended Friday, CUTigers asked Peake, ‘What stood out the most?'
"The coaching staff, just how good they are."
With three more days around the Clemson coaches in the books, Peake feels close to the staff in Tigertown.
"Just working with the coaches like I was one of their players—one of the main things is that I'm like a player already," he said.
Peake wasn't the only 2011 top-10 receiver receiving instruction and going through drills at the Dabo Swinney Football Camp last week.
Five-star Sammy Watkins was on hand from Fort Myers, Fla. His presence pushed Peake to want to perform as well or better than one the nation's other elite wide receivers.
"I like to compete. That just made me work a lot," Peake said, "just him being there."
Both were on the receiving end of plenty of passes from 2011 Clemson quarterback commit Tony McNeal.
"He can throw it well, he can really throw it," Peake said.
His Dorman teammate, Adam Humphries, has already committed to Clemson's 2011 class.
"I was happy for him when he committed. That's always been a place that he's wanted to go," Peake said.
With no plans to hit any other camps or take any visits anytime soon, Peake said his top-five remains the same, in no particular order: Clemson, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Southern California.
As for when his decision could be made, he said, "I'm just going to try and do it before the season starts next year."
Peake will decide before season
