The nation's top-rated center for 2021 announced a Clemson offer on Thursday in Damascus (Md.) lineman Ryan Linthicum.
"BLESSED TO RECEIVE AN OFFER FROM CLEMSON UNIVERSITY!!" Linthicum posted on Twitter early Thursday.
Linthicum, a recent Dabo Swinney camp visitor, is a teammate of 2020 defensive line commit Bryan Bresee.
He is rated as high as the No. 42 player in the nation (Rivals) and the No. 1 center by both Rivals and 247Sports.
Linthicum visited for the spring game also and gave the campus stop high marks.
“It was an amazing experience,” Linthicum said. “How it felt like home and it's just a wonderful place. Dabo is someone I could see myself playing for. I talked to all the coaches but coach (Todd) Bates the most and his message was to just keep working no matter what.”
"What stood out to me was how awesome the coaches are there. And, the facilities are top notch. It's somewhere where you feel like home. Bryan showed me around and we talked with coaches. It was just a great time and it's somewhere where I feel at home.”
