Visits w/ player comments:
Clemson - 1/10 - "I really liked
them. A lot different from Columbia. Smaller. Can’t get in trouble as much.
Seems like all the players get along well. Whitehurst was my host. They really
want to win next year."
South Carolina - 1/17 - "Jeff
Barnes was the host. Columbia is a real nice city. Great food. Enjoyed
speaking with Coach Holtz and having dinner with him."
Florida State - 1/24 - "Bobby Bowden came to my home last Monday night.
That’ll be my next visit and then I’ll make a decision."
"I really don’t have a leader. Going to take all my visits and then decide who I
like the most."
