Clemson continues to do damage in Georgia with safety commitment Robert Billings


by - Senior Writer -

Clemson’s recruiting continues to roll, especially in the state of Georgia.

The 2023 Clemson football recruiting class does not yet have a commitment from a South Carolina athlete. But the Tigers have gone across the border into Georgia and done a lot of damage. Their eighth commitment from the Peach State came from 4-star safety Robert Billings (6-1 185) of Alpharetta (GA) Milton, who gave his verbal during an announcement Sunday.

Billings was at Clemson Monday for the All In Cookout. He also visited in March and made his official visit in June. That was his only official visit because after that weekend, Billings decided Clemson was the place for him as he developed a strong relationship with defensive coordinator Wes Goodwin and safeties coach Mickey Conn.

“They just actively recruited me throughout my process,” Billings said. “Some schools fell off with the relationship or just stopped talking to me. In terms of what they have to offer, the education is a big part of it. And my relationship with Coach Wes and Coach Conn has always been strong since we started talking and it never let up like with other schools. And it’s pretty close to home. I don’t have to go far being from Georgia. Just the family vibe there. And I know a lot of guys that’s going there in the class of ’23.”

Billings is the second safety committed to the class, joining Kylen Webb. He sees a chance for some early snaps with the Tigers and Conn has assured him he will get his shot as a freshman.

“Coach Conn preaches to me that he wasn’t scared to start a freshman,” Billings said. “(Andrew) Mukuba was a freshman when he came in and started and was a Freshman All-American. He just wants me to work hard when I get there, and we’ll see how things go from there. But he’s been preaching to me that he’s not scared to start a freshman.”

Billings chose Clemson from a short list that also included Florida State, Duke, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Cincinnati and Missouri. He’s the Tigers 18th commitment for the 2023 class.

Clemson moved up one spot to sixth in the 247Sports Team Composite rankings with the pledge.
