DT Dexter Wideman Profile
Clemson was the first to offer Dexter Wideman, who checks in at 6-foot-4, 275 pounds.
"I really wasn't expecting it this early, but I was very surprised. That was a very good feeling," he told CUTigers on Thursday.
When he spoke on the phone with his recruiter of note on Wednesday afternoon, Charlie Harbison, Wideman also talked with Clemson's entire defensive staff -- Brent Venables, Dan Brooks and Marion Hobby.
South Carolina came through on Thursday.
"I grew up a South Carolina fan, but that doesn't mean I'm going to go there and play," Wideman said.
He's been to Columbia several times, but has never made the trip up to Clemson.
"I love their fans. It's loud. They're always excited," Wideman said. "And I love watching their defensive line. Their defense is like our defense."
As for Clemson?
"I watched them some last year and I love their defensive line," he said.
Wideman received mail from North Carolina on Wednesday.
As a sophomore, he had 61 total tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks.
Wideman and another Saluda sophomore defensive tackle, Kwamelle Barnes, will visit Clemson for the March 3 Junior Day.
