The Clemson Tigers have been doing extremely well lately on the recruiting trail, bringing in some big name players along the way. The latest player in their sights is the son of NFL great Jeremiah Trotter.

On Wednesday, Jeremiah Trotter Jr. announced on Twitter that he had received an offer from Clemson. TigerNet noted that the offer came following a trip Trotter Jr. made to Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney's camp this past week.

247Sports' Top247 ranking lists Trotter Jr. as a four-star prospect and the No. 249 player in the Class of 2021. He is the No. 9 inside linebacker in the country and the No. 8 prospect from the state of Pennsylvania.

Trotter Jr. has been collecting offers from numerous Power Five schools as his recruitment heats up.

Jeremiah Trotter Sr. was a four-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time All-Pro during his 12 year NFL career that included three stints with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was a third round pick in the 1998 NFL Draft, despite playing for a small D-1AA program, Stephen F. Austin.

He had seven seasons with over 100 tackles and was an inductee into the Eagles' Hall of Fame in 2016.

Clemson is poised to build a historic recruiting class in 2020, but are still awaiting their first commitment for the Class of 2021.

Could Jeremiah Trotter Jr. be the first big name to give his commitment to the Tigers?
