Before heading to Clemson, Valwood High School [Valdosta, Ga.] junior offensive tackle Aulden Bynum visited Georgia, Alabama, Ole Miss and Auburn.

He recently spoke to CUTigers about the stop through Tigertown.

"It was good. I liked how they have the weight room overlooking the field. I guess it gives you a sense of what you're working for while you're in there lifting. Not that you don't already know, it's just another way to put it in your head. I liked all the facilities, the West Zone."

Bynum spent a considerable amount of time with his recruiter of note, Danny Pearman.

"I pretty much talked to coach Pearman the most. He's my recruiting coach. He was telling me not to get stressed out about the whole experience," Bynum said. "That was my fifth weekend in a row on the road. I was starting to get stressed out. He was telling me to enjoy the whole process."

Most schools, including Clemson, are recruiting Bynum as an offensive tackle. Georgia Tech likes him as a defensive tackle. Auburn, Georgia, Ole Miss, North Carolina, South Carolina and Nebraska have offered.

Clemson is still evaluating him.

"They're sending a lot of mail, but they seemed pretty interested when I was up there talking to coach Pearman. But I'm just getting mail from them, like normal," he said.

The Junior Day tour was his second trip to Tigertown. He stopped through last year for an academic tour.

"Right now, I'm pretty wide-open. I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm just trying to look at everything," he said.
