Clemson has offered 2017 offensive lineman Blake Vinson from Winter Garden, Florida on Tuesday.

Robbie Caldwell and Jeff Scott came by his high school and extended the offer through his high school coach.

Vinson was excited about the news about the Clemson offer. "Pumped! I've really wanted this one," Vinson told TigerNet on Tuesday afternoon.

He has early offers from Clemson, Florida, Florida Atlantic, Miami, North Carolina State, South Florida and Vanderbilt. He is a hot prospect - Florida offered on Monday and Miami offered on Sunday.

TigerNet spoke with Vinson back in early April and he had many good things to say about Clemson and its coaching staff after his visit. Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell is the main recruiter for Vinson and he attended one of Clemson's Russell Athletic Bowl practices with a family member who played under Robbie Caldwell at Vanderbilt.

"I loved all of the coaches," Vinson said. "I got to talk to Caldwell for about 25 minutes in his office and I like him a lot." The coaching staff thinks he has the size to play offensive tackle or guard.

He also enjoyed watching Clemson's high tempo practice.

"Practice was great," he said. "The speed and tempo these teams work with is crazy."

Clemson's football facilities and surrounding areas were also extremely impressive to him.

"The facilities were crazy," Vinson said . "Everything in the football area is the nicest I've seen. They said they're building a whole new facility too. Can't wait to see that."

The Clemson coaching staff wants him to come to a camp to get evaluated by the coaching staff. He plans to visit again sometime in June.

He is a good student and also has a 4.60 shuttle, 28" vertical, 310 lb bench press and a 400 pound squat. His high school football team lost in the second round of the playoffs.
