QB Anthony Ratliff Profile
They offered Butler High School sophomore quarterback Anthony Ratliff.
The 6-foot-2, 185-pound quarterback was informed of the offer -- his first one -- by Butler head coach Brian Hales.
"[Hales] was just telling me how interested they were and they wanted me to be up at their camp this summer. Then, he told me they offered me," Ratliff told CUTigers on Wednesday night.
To Ratliff, Clemson has several things to offer.
"What I like about Clemson is the talent level and the guys that they have, the past ACC Championships they've won, the BCS bowl game, players they put out in the NFL, but, most of all, the education," he said.
Alabama, UNC, Florida and Virginia have also been by the school.
Ratliff has taken visits to North Carolina and Georgia. This summer, he'll hopes to visit Clemson, Georgia, Michigan, South Carolina, Florida State and UNC.
A number of factors will be considered by Ratliff as he moves through the recruiting process.
"Other than education, the biggest thing I'm looking for is determination from a school, knowing that they want to win," he said. "I love winning, so wherever I can go and work for that starting spot and take them to a national championship."
After splitting time at quarterback last season, Ratliff will move into the starting job during his junior season. As a sophomore, he threw for 442 yards and seven touchdowns on 22 of 38 passing with two interceptions. He was third on the team in rushing with 281 yards on 30 carries. Also, he caught eight passes for 135 yards and three scores.
In an interview with Inside Carolina, Hales said: "He's a kid that if he's in the pocket and he has time, he'll pick the defense apart.
"But, he's able to hurt a defense with his legs, too."
