South Pointe kicker B.T. Potter attended one of Dabo Swinney’s camps at Clemson on Wednesday afternoon and landed an offer from the Tigers’ head coach.
Potter was told earlier in the spring by Swinney that he performed well at camp, he’d get his offer. Potter did and Swinney followed through. It was Potter’s biggest offer to date and after talking things over with his family, Potter announced a commitment to the Tigers on Wednesday night.
“This has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember,” Potter wrote on Twitter in announcing his commitment. “I’m so thankful to have the opportunity to do so.”
Potter visited Clemson for a junior day in March and also for the spring game. He also drew interest from South Carolina and had offers from Mercer and Army.
Potter is known for having a strong leg. He recently kicked a 67-yard field goal in a showcase event. He also is a punter.
Potter is the ninth Clemson commitment for the 2018 class, the fifth from the state and second from South Pointe.
