Class of 2017 Fairburn (Ga.) Landmark Christian defensive back D.J. Brown has had a busy offseason, with several camp stops already in the books. But a performance at Clemson has put the 5-foot-10 rising sophomore squarely on the Tigers radar.
"I've been up there several times," he said. "I got invited to their prospect camp earlier this month and the defensive backs coach had told me they wanted to see my skills in person. I went up there and I impressed them so he said they want me to come back and see a practice and go to a game in the fall."
Brown said he enjoyed working out with Clemson defensive backs coach Mike Reed in an intimate setting.
"I like him a lot," Brown said. "He teaches and he's patient with me since I'm young and he teaches me new skills."
With multiple visits to Clemson already in the books, Brown said he's had the chance to see what the campus has to offer.
"I like their facilities, they're really nice," he said. "I was impressed with the way they constructed their camp. It was really nice and you could tell they were organized. It was competitive and I felt like I learned a lot of things and I felt like I did really well.
After being invited back for a game in the fall, Brown said his hope to visit for the Oct. 11 date vs. Louisville.
