Clemson nabs nation's No. 1 center in Maryland's Ryan Linthicum

December 16, 2020

★★★★ Ryan Linthicum - 6’4, 275 - Damascus High School, Damascus, MD

Clemson’s recruiting continued their national reach with the signature of the top center in the 2021 class in Ryan Linthicum‍.

For the second time in as many seasons, Clemson reaches into Damascus, Maryland for another top prospect. The 6’4 Linthicum played his high school ball with current Clemson defensive lineman Bryan Bresee.

Linthicum will eventually anchor the offensive line for Clemson and became an anchor for the 2021 recruiting class when he committed back in September of 2019. 

The 275-pounder is light on his feet and plays with nice pad level and has an aggressive streak that Tiger fans are going to love. The term “mauler” might be the appropriate word for what we see on tape.

Linthicum picked Clemson over Michigan, Ohio State, Virginia Tech, and many others. 

Having Linthicum in the mix is just the next step towards future success for Clemson on the offensive front. He’s a tremendous talent and will certainly be a welcomed addition to the Tigers’ class.

Overview: Ranked as the No. 120 overall player in the nation by, which listed him as the best center in the nation and the fifth-best player from Maryland … 247Sports ranked him as the eighth-best center in the nation and 21st-best player from Maryland … ranked him among its top 300 prospects nationally as well as the fourth-best center in the nation and 14th-best player from Maryland … invited to play in the Under Armour All-America Game … did not have a 2020 high school season due to COVID-19 pandemic … committed to Clemson on Sept. 23, 2019 … recruited by Robbie Caldwell and Mike Reed … played football, basketball and lacrosse in high school … plans to enroll at Clemson in January 2021 … played for Josh Klotz at Damascus High School … became Clemson’s second signee from Damascus in a two-year span, joining 2020 signee Bryan Bresee … born Sept. 7, 2002.
