CLEMSON, S.C. - Assistant Coach Tony Elliott was named ACC Recruiter-of-the-Year by Scout.com. The website that covers college football with an emphasis on recruiting named a top recruiter in each conference after the conclusion of National Signing Day last Wednesday.

“He 'killed it' out of state, helping Dabo Swinney and Clemson reel in a trio of four-star prospects and a five star,” said Jamie Newberg of Scout.com.

Elliott was a key to Clemson’s success in Tampa, Fla. Clemson signed Deon Cain (Tampa Bay Technical High School), Ray Ray McCloud (Sickles High School) and Jake Fruhmorgen (Plant High School) from the area. Elliott also recruited five-star offensive lineman Mitch Hyatt, Clemson’s first Parade All-America offensive lineman since 1987.

Elliott, a 2002 Clemson graduate with a degree in industrial engineering who played the 2003 season as a graduate, was named co-offensive coordinator along with Jeff Scott at the end of the 2014 regular season. Clemson responded with a 40-6 victory over Oklahoma in the Russell Athletic Bowl.
