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.

She said that Lawson had been up with former Clemson commit Ryan Jenkins Ryan Jenkins

, but this was her first trip to Clemson.

“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 is rated as the third-best player in the state of Georgia, behind former Clemson commit Robert Nkemdiche Robert Nkemdiche

and Lawson, and it appears that he is now down to Clemson and Georgia, with Florida also in the mix but trailing the first two schools.

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