One of the nation’s best offensive linemen spent part of a day on Clemson’s campus last week and came away with the Tigers firmly in the mix for his services.
Big (6-4, 310) 3-star offensive tackle Adrian Medley of Pensacola (FL) visited Clemson this week along with his teammate and close friend OL Hunter Rayburn. The two made the trek to Clemson as part of a tour of schools with their high school teammates.
According to Medley, the two probably will go to the same school. They both visited Florida State Thursday and this weekend they are taking an official visit to Texas A&M. Medley said for him, the decision is between Clemson and Texas A&M.
"It went great, I love it. I loved it up there," Medley said of his Clemson visit noting the Chemical Engineering building and the library really stood out to him. As for the football side, "Everything there is nice. I like the weight room. And I like how Coach (Caldwell) teaches football. I love everything he does."
Medley got the chance to talk with Caldwell and head coach Dabo Swinney and got the message from the two he wanted to hear.
"They said they would love to meet my family and love for me to go down there and play left tackle for them. They are in the top two with Texas A&M. They are both really tied up right now. I'm looking for a family atmosphere when I go there and how my mom is going to like it"
Medley added that his pal Rayburn also enjoyed the Clemson visit.
"He loved Clemson. His mom really, really wants him to go there,” Medley said.
Medley said he might return to Clemson for another unofficial visit before he decides later this month or in July. And he'd like to take an official visit to Clemson in December.
Medley has an impressive offer sheet, with offers from schools across the map including Arizona, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida St., Miami, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, and Vanderbilt. He visited Clemson’s campus back on March 2nd and left with an offer.
