Renfrow to walk-on at Clemson
Posted Jan 30, 2014

Shrine Bowl wide receiver Hunter Renfrow will join the Clemson football team later this year as a preferred walk-on.

On Thursday morning, Renfrow called Danny Pearman to tell him and Dabo Swinney that he was ready to commit.

“They were excited…ready to go,” Renfrow told CUTigers on Thursday evening.

The former Socastee High School quarterback was down to a scholarship offer at Appalachian State or the opportunity to walk-on at Clemson.

A week after his official trip to Boone, Renfrow was in Tigertown.

“I’ve always wanted to go there, but I just really enjoyed last week whenever I went on my official,” he said. “I really enjoyed it. They cared more about life than life than they did football and it was more important to them. That was important to me.”

Plus, the opportunity to play football at Clemson was a hard proposal to turn down.

“I just wanted the chance to play at the highest level," Renfrow said. "I felt like I was going to get that at Clemson.”

Jeff Scott has filled him in on the details of what he’ll be doing at Clemson.

“I talked to Scott and he said I could play any of the three [wide receiver positions]. I’ll be mainly at the slot and told me that they’re slot splits out wide and usually off the ball, but a lot like what Adam Humphries does,” Renfrow said.

As a senior at Socastee, he had 1,500 yards rushing and 850 yards passing and was responsible for 27 touchdowns.
