The success of previous wide receivers has Class of 2016 WR Tavares Chase (6-2 175) of Bradenton, FL interested in Clemson. The Tigers have offered and Chase indicated that the Tigers are appealing to him.

"They told me I could be a play maker there," he said. "They want to get the ball in my hands and let me work. Clemson produces top wide receivers and I'm looking for that. I want to get noticed."

USC also has offered and has given him the same impression though his interest level in the Gamecocks are not as strong right now.

"They're telling me pretty much the same thing (that Clemson is)," Chase said. "It's a pretty good school and they're on their way up. I'm considering them as well."

Chase wants to see both Palmetto State schools and is thinking of checking them out after the season.

His other offers include Florida State, Auburn, Georgia, Florida, Miami, Kentucky, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State, Michigan, Michigan State, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Virginia Tech.

Chase caught 26 passes for 406 yards and five touchdowns as a sophomore and on defense had 43 total tackles and four interceptions.
