Tramel Terry, one of South Carolina's top junior prospects, spent the entire weekend in Clemson. And to say it was an eye-opening experience, would be an understatement.

The Goose Creek junior athlete timed this three-day, two-night unofficial visit to coincide with the Tigers' big official visit weekend.

"It was real good. It was way more than I expected. I liked it a lot," Terry told CUTigers on Monday.

Last year, he took a similar kind of visit to South Carolina when former Goose Creek offensive tackle Brandon Shell was on his official visit in Columbia.

Terry was in Clemson over the weekend with Goose Creek senior linebacker T.J. Burrell, a Clemson commitment.

"When I did that, it kind of helped South Carolina a lot," Terry said. "I didn't want to be biased towards South Carolina, so I did it to Clemson, to help my recruiting and get an inside look."

While in town, he got to know several of current Clemson players and 2012 commitments.

"We were just talking," Terry said. "I feel like Clemson has a real family atmosphere. Everybody's cool, just chill. It's like a college community. It's a football town. Everybody loves football there."

Did the visit improve the Tigers standing?

"It definitely does. I got to see a lot that I didn't know about," he said.

As far as his leaders are concerned, the former Georgia commitment said he's "open to everybody."

"It may seem that way, because I got there all the time, but I'm committed to nobody," Terry said.

The four-star cornerback, according to Scout.com will return to Clemson later this month on the 28th for Junior Day. He'll had to the South Carolina junior day in February.

As a junior Terry rushed 109 times for 766 yards and eight touchdowns. He also caught 42 passes for 819 yards and six touchdowns.

As a sophomore, he caught 28 passes for 606 yards and five touchdowns, and added three more scores rushing. Terry also returned 12 kicks for 303 yards.
