Camp standout Tayveon Wilson says being Clemson's first offer at position "means a lot"


by - Correspondent -

One three-sport athlete has caught Clemson’s attention.

2026 Huntington (WV) prospect Tayveon Wilson received an offer from Clemson on June 17th. He recently attended Dabo Swinney’s Clemson High School Camp and enjoyed how the Tigers conducted the summer activities.

“It was a fun camp,” Wilson said. “It was different from any of the camps I’ve been to. They didn’t do any of the time stuff and got straight into the action, and I liked that.”

The junior spent most of his time with tight ends coach Kyle Richardson and graduate assistant Andrew Shipman, who hope to see Wilson down the road.

“I spent most of my time with Coach (Kyle) Richardson and Coach (Andrew) Shipman,” Wilson said. “They told me I did a great job at camp, and they told me they wanted to see me on game day.”

Wilson is currently listed as a receiver, but the Tigers offered him as a tight end. Wilson has experience in the position, playing in the position from specific sets within his high school playbook.

He’s taking the offer as a challenge to get in the weight room and get stronger.

“It is different,” Wilson said. “It lets me know that I need to get into the weight room and gain some weight. Within our offense, I play a mix of the position, and I have done it before.”

Clemson’s attention may be fixated on Wilson as just a football player, but he certainly brings more to the table.

Wilson also plays baseball, and basketball, and he isn’t too bad at them, either. He recently wrapped up a baseball tournament for his travel team, the Huntington Hounds, batting .455 with seven RBIs and four stolen bases. He is also featured on a travel team for summer basketball.

As far as the rest of the summer is concerned, Wilson is continuing the three-sport life, with plans to compete in basketball and baseball tournaments before football season.

Wilson plans to visit Clemson in the fall, using one of his gameday visits.

Regarding where the Tigers stand, being Clemson's lone 2026 tight end offer is significant to him.

“It means a lot,” Wilson said. “(Richardson) He told me that I’m the only player in the country with an offer in the class of 2026 for a tight end. That means a lot.”
