Kobe McCloud 'knew the ins and outs of Clemson' thanks to brother Ray-Ray

November 17, 2023

On recruiting process: “Actually it was a lot. I was already family with Clemson you know, my brother went here. It was a great experience, Coach Swinney called me and my family to let me know that he wanted to offer me. I just knew the ins and outs of Clemson. I knew everything about it. I knew all the coaches growing up since I was in middle school. The vision they had for me and planned out sounded like it was going to be a good run for me for 3 or 4 years. That was just something I needed. Everything on the field, Clemson has always been dominant. I already knew that point was going to be great. But, off the field was the thing I looked at most as well. Paw Journey, what they had to offer for my older self. The tools they equipped me with. All that had a big deal for me in coming to Clemson.”

On personal growth: “I feel like it’s a big difference. Obviously physical and most importantly mental. Coming in right before fall camp, having everything thrown at you, everything’s fast. I just had to get myself mentally and physically ready. Coming into this year, I just felt ready. It was a big difference from last year. It was a big jump. I knew the playbook in and out. I physically got myself in the weight room. Offseason, I just worked.”

On his tackle for loss against Georgia Tech: “It was something that we had been seeing on film. The play that was called right when I had seen it on the sideline. I kind of knew what was coming and knew it was awesome to happened. To hear everyone in the crowd. Hear the crowd. Hear my teammates. It was just a great experience.” 

On playing in Death Valley: “It was a blessing. Just gotta thank the lord and savior for giving me that opportunity. Coming from watching in the stands to actually doing it. It’s something I dreamed about since a kid. It did feel so real and I know many more will come. I know that for sure.”
