Our Take:

Luke Winstel

Speed kills! Tyler Brown can take the top off a defense- a trait Clemson’s offense severely lacked this fall. As Clemson's positional need opened up with two wide receivers departing via the transfer portal, the Tigers earned a commitment from the “must-get” in-state target. Brown was an impressive piece in the explosive Greenville offense that also featured four-star 2024 prospect Mazeo Benett. 

While he is a “late-bloomer” and a consensus three-star, On3 has been impressed with Brown’s senior year film. As a result, they recently became the first recruiting service to name him a four-star recruit.

Regardless of the rating, Brown is a raw but electrifying prospect that receivers coach Tyler Grisham can integrate into the Clemson offense sooner rather than later.

Morgan Thomas - Slot receiver with the ability to get open quickly and break away after the catch. He is familiar with the spread-type offense and has experience with WR screens and running pre-snap motion. He is very fast down the sidelines and has been used as a punt and kick returner for his school.
