OG Austin Droogsma Profile
It was the second visit to Clemson for Gulf Breeze, Fla. junior offensive
lineman Austin Droogsma.
"It was awesome. In a nutshell, it was awesome. I had a great time,
received great hospitality up there. I have nothing but good things to say
about them," Droogsma told CUTigers Monday night. "Everything from
the tour to the food, to the individual coach time that everybody got to
spend with their coaches, it was awesome."
Droogsma had plenty of one-on-one time with offensive line coach Robbie
Caldwell, who dropped off an offer at Gulf Breeze earlier this year.
"We were just trying to get to know each other a little better. I left
there feeling like I had built a pretty good relationship with him,"
Droogsma said. "That's what I like to see from coaches -- can be your
buddy off the field, but can get after you when he needs to. That's what
he showed me."
Offensive coordinator Chad Morris, recruiting coordinator Chad
Morris and tight ends coach Danny Pearman also spoke with
"I learned that tradition means more to them than anything else. I love
that. They've built a team around a tradition that has been a part of
their school for half a century," Droogsma said.
A trip to Georgia Tech was planned for this weekend, but that was
cancelled for personal reasons.
Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech and USF have offered.
"I will say that Clemson is probably in the top-two right now," he said.
"If I had to put a number on it, I would say my top-two would be FSU and
Droogsma grew up pulling for the Seminoles, but that doesn't necessarily
mean they're the leaders.
"It's in no particular order," he said.
