Florida WR makes first Clemson trip

Jacksonville's First Coast High School sent 15 campers to the Dabo Swinney Football Camp this summer, one of which is a 2012 wide receiver that's already receiving interest from some of the big names in college football.

WR Chris Black Profile

CUTigers caught up with wide receiver Chris Black after he spent his first day in Clemson.

"Me and the rest of players, we were just amazed. The other schools we've been to, they've got them beat," he said. "They've got everything—the facilities, weight room—just everything."

Black was able to work with wide receivers coach/recruiting coordinator Jeff Scott, who's the main recruiter at First Coast.

"I love coach Scott. He's a pretty cool guy," Black said. "He was trying to help me and show me things to be better."

With several offers to his name already, Black is keeping track of five, in particular.

"Florida State, Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida," he listed.

Two are standing out from that group.

"Florida State and Clemson," he said. "I know more about those two schools. I know a lot about South Carolina, too, but they kind of stand out more to me. I like the coaches.

"Coach Scott at Clemson and coach (Lawrence) Dawsey at Florida State, those are the coaches I try to stay in contact with."

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