Saturday marked the first visit to Clemson for M.L. King High School [Lithonia] junior Joshua Outlaw.

"The trip to Clemson was great. They showed me some things that I didn't know about. I didn't think Clemson would be as nice as it was. It kind of exceeded expectations," he told CUTigers on Saturday.

The 6-foot-3, 270-pound prospect was offered by Clemson last month. He's also received offers from Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisville, Vanderbilt, South Florida and East Carolina.

Outlaw, whose primary recruiter to Clemson is defensive ends coach Marion Hobby, was impressed with what the Tigers showed him during the visit.

"I didn't know Clemson was putting so much into their campus. They're building a new state of the art indoor facility," Outlaw said. "Coach [Dabo] Swinney, he was great. It seems like he has a genuine interest in his players. I really enjoyed him.

"Coach Hobby, my recruiting coordinator, he brought me in and showed me a great time, allowed me to see a lot of things. I really appreciate him for that. Overall, I think Clemson has really great facilities."

Swinney had Outlaw in his office for a one-on-one meeting.

"He was just telling me that he really likes my athletic abilities as an o-lineman," Outlaw said. "Coming in, he wants the best players to play. He has no problem with freshmen playing…I really think I can see myself contributing early for Clemson."

Several of his teammates were also on the trip to Clemson, including 2013 defensive end Jacarthy Mack.
