Clemson WR target sets announcement date

4-star 2017 wide receiver OrTre Smith from Mount Pleasant, SC (Wando high) has Clemson in his top group on Wednesday according to his Twitter account.

"I want to thank all the coaches that gave me the opportunity to further my education and football career at their programs," Smith tweeted. "As of now these are my top five schools in no particular order that I will continue to proceed in my recruiting process. I will be choosing my school of choice on September 11."

His top five schools were UNC, Clemson, South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia.

Smith is rated as the No. 3 overall player in the state and is rated as No. 242 in the ESPN 300 and owns 13 offers from Clemson, Florida St., Georgia Tech, Louisville, Ole Miss, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Tennessee among others.

He and his mother recently took an unofficial visit to Clemson and his highlight of the trip was the time they spent with coach Dabo Swinney.

“We spoke with Coach Swinney about an hour and fifteen minutes," Smith's mom said. "It was a genuine conversation, really, with him explaining the Clemson culture to OrTre and myself and getting us to buy in. "I explained to OrTre that Clemson brings a family atmosphere, and that was one thing that attracted me to Clemson. And the same goes for OrTre. I am a single mom and this is who he knows, is me. It's going to be important - for both of us - to feel very comfortable when I drop him off. I need to know that he's taken care of. He (Swinney) talked a lot about that. He talked about the recruitment and how OrTre would benefit from attending Clemson and how he would be a good asset to the program."

Smith had 84 catches for 1,436 yards and 18 touchdowns as a junior. As a sophomore, Smith registered 31 catches for 462 yards and four touchdowns.
