As anticipated, a busy week at two sessions of Dabo Swinney's high school camp yielded little in the way of immediate commitments.
The lone exception was rising junior tight end J.C. Chalk of Argyle, Texas, who became the initial member of Clemson's 2016 recruiting class. Chalk is the grandson of Gene Stallings, for whom Swinney played at Alabama.
While most of the week's media attention focused on a handful of highly-rated 2015 prospects who attended camp, the overall emphasis was squarely on making in-person evaluations for down-the-road, especially for 2016.
During the course of the week, Clemson's coaches made their best sustained push for possible elite additions to their nationally second-ranked 2015 class, including five-star defensive tackle Tim Settle of Manassas, Virginia; four-star offensive lineman Zack Bailey of Summerville, South Carolina, four-star wide receiver/running back Ray Ray McCloud of Tampa, Florida, four-star defensive end Austin Bryant of Thomasville, Georgia; and four-star defensive lineman Albert Huggins of Orangeburg, South Carolina.
Also attending camp and emerging as a possible 'oversign' at offensive line was four-star Matthew Burrell of Woodbridge, Virginia.
Clemson delivered offers to a trio of 2016 prospects: defensive back Mecole Hardman of Elberton, Georgia, offensive lineman Austin Myers of Manvel, Texas, and cornerback Brian Dawkins of Parker, Colorado - the son of former Tiger and NFL star Brian Dawkins.
More offers are likely to be extended shortly.
Some players to keep an eye on for 2016, many of whom attended camp, include running back Tavien Feaster of Spartanburg, South Carolina; offensive lineman Chidi Valentine-Okeke of Hialeah, Florida; wide receiver Delontae Moore of Washington, D.C.; wide receiver Bryan Edwards of Conway, South Carolina; defensive back Cedric Wright of Miami, Florida; running back Robert Washington of Huntersville, North Carolina; linebacker Josh Brown of Charlotte, North Carolina; defensive tackle Julian Rochester of Power Springs, Georgia; cornerback Robbie Robinson of Hampton, Virginia; wide receiver Reggie Hemphill of Manvel, Texas; quarterback Zerrick Cooper of Jonesboro, Georgia; and defensive end Janarius Robinson of Panama City, Florida.
