Seth Ryan, the son of New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan, has received an offer to become a preferred walk-on at Clemson and will visit Clemson this weekend.

Ryan is a 2013 defensive back prospect out of Summit High School in New Jersey, and he missed a good portion of the 2012 season while dealing with the effects of a concussion. As a junior, he registered 26 tackles and recorded two interceptions.

Ryan said that Clemson has been on his radar for a long time.

“I have been considering Clemson for a long time,” he said. “They have a great football history, and I really like the atmosphere at Clemson. That is how I got interested in them.”

Ryan said his dad has a ton of respect for the Clemson coaching staff, and he believes the coaches will make him a better player.

“I really do think I am going to enjoy Clemson,” he said. “They are going to take any player, and they will make him into a damn good player. I know my dad has met and talked to Coach [Dabo] Swinney, and he was very impressed with him. I am looking forward to meeting with him and talking with him.”


Ryan said he will arrive in Clemson on Friday and stay thru Sunday.

“I actually leave Friday afternoon,” he said. “I have been talking to Coach [Dan] Brooks, the defensive tackles coach. He is a great guy. He told me I could get a spot as a preferred walk on, and if I get to where I get enough playing time then I could earn a scholarship.”

Ryan said he currently is considering two schools – Clemson and Texas A&M – and the Tigers are telling him they will work him out at both safety and slot receiver.

“I will probably end up at safety,” he said. “I like being in the middle of the defense and getting everybody lined up. My choice of schools is still up in the air, but Clemson is a very high choice.”
