DE Ray Drew Profile
The Scout.com No. 8 ranked defensive end in the class of 2011 will take his fifth and final official visit to Clemson this weekend.
"I just want to use it as a refresher, because I went up there one time before," Drew told CUTigers. "I want to see what all has changed, for the good and for the worse."
He was impressed with the new defensive ends coach, who he officially met on Monday. Hobby also called Drew last week.
"He's a good guy. He's knowledgeable about the game. He's been around it. He coached a number of teams at the college, and NFL level," Drew said. "He said he doesn't get the same amount of joy coaching NFL players as he does college players.
"He'd rather take somebody while they're young and make them rich, instead of making a rich guy richer."
Drew shared his vision for the future.
"I told him what I was looking to do, and he's ready to roll with it," he said.
Six schools are currently in play for his signature.
Along with Clemson, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Miami and Alabama are the candidates. After this weekend, he'll have visited every school officially, except for Alabama.
"I'll probably make my decision a few days before [signing day]," Drew said.
