After Clemson's 35-30 win over Florida State, Spartanburg High School junior Justin Bridges-Thompson spoke with head coach Dabo Swinney and his recruiter of note, wide receivers coach Jeff Scott.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound prospect met with the coaches in the Tigers' locker room.

"They brought my name up in a meeting about an offer, but they needed to see some film," Bridges-Thompson told CUTigers.com earlier this week. "I talked to coach [Freddie] Brown, my head coach, to send film. From the next two weeks, he's going to send film so they can see me, watch me play so they can evaluate me."

Saturday marked the second-time he's visited Clemson.

"What stood out to me mostly, Clemson has a lot of fan support," Bridges-Thompson said of his most recent trip. "Of course, I knew they had a lot of fans for a big game, but there's a lot of tradition there... a lot of pride and tradition. That's what I liked the most.

"The game time atmosphere, the pre-game, the warm-ups, everything. Everything about Clemson, I love it."

In fact, this season, he's only visited Clemson. Trip No. 1 was for the Wofford game.

Bridges-Thompson does have other plans.

"On Nov. 5, I'm going to Miami to watch the Hurricanes play. I'm supposed to fly down there," he said. "In October, I'm supposed to be going to Pittsburgh to watch Pittsburgh and Utah play since they offered me -- Pittsburgh did."

To go along with Pittsburgh, Wake Forest has also offered.

Currently, Bridges-Thompson claims no list of favorites.

"It's just up in the air with me, basically," he said.

As a linebacker at Spartanburg, Bridges-Thompson has 57 tackles this season.
