Allendale-Fairfax High School junior Ronald Geohaghan spoke with CUTigers shortly after he finished up at Clemson's second junior day.

"After we came from the basketball game, we toured the facilities and went to the weight room. Coach Dan Brooks pulled me to the side. Me, my cousin and my parents had a meeting with coach [Dabo] Swinney for a while. After that, I went on half of the rest of the visit by myself.

"Then, we went to the locker room and they had jerseys there. I thought they weren't going to let us try on jerseys today. They had one jersey with No. 35 in there. They let me wear that. I went to Howard's Rock by myself and went down the hill by myself."

During the meeting with Swinney, the Tigers' head coach encouraged Geohaghan to pick a school that was best for him.

"He told me to go wherever I feel comfortable at. If I don't feel comfortable anywhere, just take as much time as I need to," he said. "Also, he explained how at Clemson it's not like other universities in a big city...Clemson's a great small town with people surrounding you that have the same priorities."

Along with Clemson, Geohaghan has offers from South Carolina, Illinois, Kentucky, East Carolina, N.C. State and Tulane.

"Right now, I'm still evaluating all the different programs, to see what they have to offer me," he said.

Geohaghan enjoyed the stop through Vickery Hall.

"The APR rating, they make sure all of the football players graduate," he said.

There were plenty of other areas that stand out about Clemson.

"The coaches and players are a great family feel. I feel very comfortable with the coaches and players," Geohaghan said. "It feels like home to me. They have some great facilities—some grade A facilities that are some of the best in the country. " Top Stories
