OT Oliver Jones Profile
Ninety Six High School junior Oliver Jones has two offers—Clemson and South Carolina.
He's been to both several times this season, and doesn't claim one as a favorite over the other. That holds true just days after the 29-7 state championship win by the Gamecocks.
"Each week, Clemson could beat a team and Carolina could lose," he recently told CUTigers. "I don't let one game decide."
The Scout.com three-star prospect arrived to Clemson around 2:30 Saturday afternoon. He spoke with several coaches on the visit.
Recruiting coordinator/wide receivers coach Jeff Scott, offensive guards and centers coach Brad Scott, offensive tackles/tight ends coach Danny Pearman and running backs coach/special teams coordinator Andre Powell.
"They were just talking about the atmosphere, how it was going to be that night, how excited they were about having me there," Jones said. "They want me to be a Tiger."
Earlier during his season, Jones was sidelined with a broken femur and an ACL injury.
"As it turns out, I don't have to have ACL surgery," he said. "That's a big step in the process. It's going to help expedite the process. It's a good thing that I'm not going to have the surgery.
"I can do everything, lifting-wise—squat, hang-clean—all that stuff. The only thing I can't do is jump and hard cutting."
