Rashan Gary is the nation’s top recruit for the class of 2016 and he is now down to two schools. It’s either going to be the ACC’s Clemson Tigers or Big Ten’s Michigan Wolverines. The 6’4″, 285-pound defensive tackle from Paramus (N.J.) Catholic High School had his final official visit to Clemson this past weekend and it sounds like his mom, Jennifer Coney, enjoyed the visit a whole lot.
“The academics, and the academic support, I was pleasantly surprised with everything at Clemson,” Coney said. “The staff, the whole staff, the whole student body. I’m not talking about the football players, and the football players were phenomenal, but the whole student body. The players want them to recruit good football players because it’s only going to make them better.”
She also said that the football players weren’t threatened by Gary and that they fully embraced him as one of their own while he was on campus. Gary is set to make his announcement at 1:10 p.m. on Wednesday.
