Clemson offers 4-star Tyler Davis to bolster defensive line

Clemson is looking to add to its already-stout defensive line.

Four-star defensive tackle Tyler Davis, the No. 18 defensive tackle in the country out of Wekiva High School in Apopka, Fla., announced Monday that he received an offer from the Tigers.

Davis already has 27 offers from schools around the country, including Ohio State, Texas A&M and in-state schools Florida, Florida State and Miami.

The 6-foot-1, 255-pound lineman was recently named the Florida Class 8A defensive player of the year, as well as first-team All-State. He also recently earned defensive line MVP honors at the Nike “Opening” Regional in Miami.

Davis could be another stud in what has become the strength of defensive coordinator Brent Venables’ unit over the past few years.

Austin Bryant, Clelin Ferrell and Christian Wilkins all elected to return to school this season and will be joined by two of the best defensive end prospects in the Class of 2018 in K.J. Henry and Xavier Thomas.

All of them have the potential to join the likes of Vic Beasley, Shaq Lawson, Kevin Dodd, Carlos Watkins and D.J. Reader, who have all been drafted to the NFL after their time in Death Valley.
