Visits w/ player comments:


Clemson 1/10

 


South Carolina 1/17 - "To tell you the truth I really like the way Charlie
Strong ran their defense but now that he is gone I'm not sure who the
defensive coordinator is or how they are going to run things.  So I
wanted to take a visit to see where things stand at."



Maryland  1/24 - "I want to visit so I can learn more about Maryland." 


 

Georgia 1/31 -"Georgia is known for football.  They are on the rise and
they are on top in the SEC.  Their coach is very straight forward."


 




Leaders:


"I'm leaning to Clemson but I'm still going to take my
visits to be sure."






How was your trip to Clemson?

"Visit went real well. I ate a lot of food. Met a lot of people. I got to
know everyone."



Who was your player host?

"It was my brother Roosevelt Nelson."



What has your brother told you about Clemson and why would you want to go to
same school as your brother ?

"A lot of people don’t get to a chance to play with their older brother or
younger brother at a major college.  I'd like to play with him like we did
in high school."

What were some things that stood out from your trip?

"Coach Bowden spoke real well about the academics. Vickery hall is second to
none. Everything was just real good."



What were some things that stood out from your trip?

"I can run very well. I can
cover. I can play multiple positions- Linebacker and defensive back.
"



Any visits from coaches this week?

"Coach from Clemson coach Stockstill and Coach Bowden supposed to come by on
Wednesday."
