4-star lineman Grant Wise says there's 'something different' about Clemson


by - Correspondent -

When it comes to Clemson, one lineman in the class of 2026 feels something different in the air.

Milton (FL) Pace’s Grant Wise received an offer from Clemson earlier this month. Wise says the program’s relationship with him made it special.

“The offer was huge for me,” Wise said. “They don’t offer a lot of people. There are some schools that will offer just about anyone. They wait for junior year and wait to build a relationship, and I think it means something to offer a kid. It is a commitable offer, and it means more than other teams.”

Wise is regarded as one of the top linemen in the class of 2026. He boasts offers from Georgia, Ohio State, and Alabama, among several other programs.

Following the Clemson offer, Wise had the opportunity to attend Dabo Swinney’s high school football camp and work with Matt Luke.

“I think it was great getting to work with him (Luke),” he said. “I got to see how he coaches and get to know him better off and on the field.”

Wise had the opportunity to showcase his game, which he describes as playing football the way it should be.

“I like playing football the way it should be,” said Wise. “I like running the ball and playing violent. I like protecting the quarterback in pass protection, too. Playing with violence and finishing blocks is a big thing I pride myself in.”

Regarding Wise’s eventual decision, he’s letting things play out. He’s taking advantage of his time, going on official visits next summer, and narrowing down his choices.

As to where the Tigers stand in the mix, Wise simply said there’s something different about the Clemson program.

“I don’t know how to explain it,” Wise said. “There’s something different about Clemson. There’s something different with the coaches there. They are more connected. It is definitely a different place.”

As the summer takes shape, Wise plans to step back from camps and visits and challenge himself to lead his high school workouts back in Pace.

“I don’t know if I will be attending very many more camps,” said Wise. “I’m going to be spending time with my team and taking a leadership role with them.”
