The 6-foot-4, 285-pound rising senior from Lithonia High School (Ga.) spent three hours on campus, most of which with administrator Brad Scott.

"They showed us around. A former player at Clemson, [graduate assistant coach] La'Donte Harris, gave us a tour, my mom and my family," Harris told CUTigers.com after his visit. "He talked about how they like me as a player and how I would be a big impact for the Clemson community and family."

Was there any significance to the timing of Thursday's visit?

"I'm already down here for a family, so I thought I'd stop by and show some love to them," he said.

Clemson defensive ends coach Marion Hobby, who serves as the primary contact for the Tigers, keeps in frequent touch with Harris.

"We're real cool. I like him a lot. That's one of my favorite recruiters," Harris said.

Currently, he claims no favorites.

"I'm just going to give everybody a look, see what everybody has to offer. There are a lot of colleges," Harris said.

A decision should be reached sometime around the end of the summer or at the beginning of his high school season.

Listed by Scout.com as a four-star guard, Clemson likes him as a tackle.
