Visits w/ player comments:

Auburn -


Clemson 1/24  - "I
had a real good time. I felt like I fit in with the players." 


Did you commit to the Tigers?
"Actually Coach
Bowden is supposed to be visiting my school tomorrow, and I have plans to
committing to Clemson."

What were the factors that made you want to commit to Clemson?
"Coach Bowden is a real good coach. He is very intellectual and talks
to me. It's a business but he didn’t carry on like it was a business. The
players made me feel like I fit right in. I felt real good about my decision."

What position is Clemson recruiting you for?

What are your strengths as a corner?
"I’ve been told that I have
good hips and feet
.  My speed is the main thing.
I’m pretty fundamentally

How is the adjustment from free safety to corner going to?
"At corner you’re more
like a run stopper and more of a cover guy. Corner is more man on man and
have to be determined to not let that receiver beat you. I don't think it will
be that hard of a transition. My freshman year I played corner so I don’t think
it will be that big of a problem.

Who was your player host this weekend?
"Jaamal Fudge."

Who is recruiting you for the Tigers?
"Coach Hines is the main one that is recruiting me. Coach Lovett has been by
to visit and  Coach Smith."

Any more visits?
"No it's a done deal."
