CLEMSON – The weekend is over, and Clemson’s official visitor list had quite a few impressive names on it, including

None of the players who weren’t already committed gave a verbal, but we’ve talked to a few people from this weekend that say that this weekend went off about as well as it could have gone.
Most of the recruits arrived in Clemson on Friday, had a meal in the WestZone with their player hosts Friday evening and took a trip out to Dabo Swinney’s house on Lake Keowee for dessert. On Saturday, they toured the facilities and attended Clemson’s basketball win over Virginia.
TigerNet spoke with the mother of defensive end prospect Carl Lawson out of Alpharetta (GA) Milton, who is considered by many scouting services to be the number one-rated weakside defensive end prospect in the state and the number two player in the state of Georgia.
“This was my first trip to Clemson, and it went really well,” she said. “We enjoyed the visit. But we are declining all interviews right now.”
Lawson is committed to Auburn, but is thought to be seriously considering Clemson. The 6-2, 253-pounder is also considering Tennessee and Ole Miss.
Adams also texted back to TigerNet and indicated he had a great visit as well, and we will update his status later with a story. Adams spent a lot of time with Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney at Saturday’s basketball game.

Adams has one final visit set – with Georgia – and will announce on National Signing Day.
