With Clemson looking to fill its remaining spots in the 2018 recruiting class and needing defensive backs, the Tigers will host one of the nation’s top uncommitted prospects for an official visit this weekend.

5-star Plantation (FL) American Heritage cornerback Patrick Surtain, Jr. – the No. 5 prospect in the ESPN 300 – told TigerNet that he will make the trip to Clemson this weekend with his mother. The 6-2, 183-pound prospects has taken official visits to LSU and Alabama over the course of the last two weeks.

Surtain – the son of former NFL corner Patrick Surtain, Sr. – last visited Clemson for its elite junior day in January 2017.

Back in August, Surtain announced a top six of LSU, Alabama, Ohio State, Florida, Clemson and Florida State. While LSU has long been the perceived favorite, an official visit to Clemson is certainly a step in the right direction.

The elder Surtain also serves as his son’s head coach at American Heritage, which has gone 27–0 with two state titles over the last two seasons and boasts two elite cornerbacks in Surtain and Tyson Campbell, the No. 3 prospect at that position in the class of 2018, according to the 247Sports Composite.
