OT Oliver Jones Profile
The Ninety Six High School rising senior arrived to Clemson around 7
o'clock Friday night and was there until early Saturday afternoon.
"Me and Pat [Destefano] had already planned on already
trying to get up there together one weekend, and that's the date that we
chose," Jones recently told CUTigers.com.

"It was the same as it had been before when I spent the night there,"
The Scout.com three-star offensive tackle was unable to visit the
previous weekend for the Orange and White spring game. Instead, he made a
trip Alabama on that Saturday, his second trip to Tuscaloosa.
"I got the full tour of the facilities, met some more of the coaches and
the offensive line coach, all that stuff," he said.
Later this week, Jones will pay a visit to South Carolina. He has no other
plans following that trip to Columbia.

"I'm not going to be able to do contact or anything [this spring].

hopefully," Jones said.

stuff like that."
Clemson and South Carolina are still the only two offers to Jones' name.
He's still in regular contact with Alabama, North Carolina and Georgia.
