OT Oliver Jones Profile
The Ninety Six High School junior offensive tackle visited Tigertown to
watch practice on Wednesday.
"I was making rounds. I'd already been to some other schools. Went to
North Carolina this past Saturday and went to Georgia on Tuesday," Jones
told CUTigers.com earlier this week.
The last time the Scout.com three-star watched a Clemson practice
was before the bowl game in December. He's impressed with the pace of play
that Chad Morris has brought to Clemson from Tulsa.
"The new offense, just the speed, is the first thing that sticks out to
you," Jones said. "How fast they break out the huddle and how fast they go
from play to play. During a 10-minute stretch, I think I saw them get
about 30 plays in, which is ridiculous. That's fast pace moving."
Wednesday was also the first-time Jones saw new offensive line coach
Robbie Caldwell during practice.
"He's a genuine guy. He's the same kind of guy off the field as he is on
the field," Jones said. "Well, he's more aggressive on the field. He's not
the kind of guy that's going to cuss you out all practice. He's not a push
over either. He's going to get done what he wants to get done."
Jones also visited South Carolina to watch the Gamecocks practice. It's
possible that he will visit Alabama this spring.
Former Clemson coach Burton Burns, the Crimson Tide running backs
coach, recruited South Carolina. Now, former Clemson defensive ends coach
Chris Rumph is manning the state.
Former Clemson offensive coordinator Billy Napier, who is on the
quality control staff at Alabama, served as Jones' primary recruiter while
he was at Clemson. Defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison now
recruits Jones' area.
"No [order], it's just Clemson, Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, North
Carolina, East Carolina."
