Dexter Wideman, the sophomore from Saluda High School was back in
Clemson after visiting just a few weeks earlier for the March Junior Day.

Harbison. He took me into the meeting room and I just watched what
the team did before they practiced," he said in an interview with
What stood out at practice?
"College football is way faster than high school football. When I get to
college, I'm going to have to adjust to that. They go with a lot of
intensity and give a lot of effort."
Wideman also met with head coach Dabo Swinney and defensive tackles
coach Dan Brooks.
"Before I went to the practice field, I went to coach Swinney's office. He
was just talking to me about the history of Clemson and all kind of things
about Clemson," Wideman said. "Coach Brooks, I went into his meeting room
and watched film with the defensive linemen."
He'd met with Swinney on his previous visit to Clemson.
"I really like them. They make sure they have good relationships with
their players and that's what I liked," Wideman said.
A return trip to Clemson will be made this weekend for the Orange and
White spring game.
Clemson and South Carolina have offered. North Carolina and Auburn have
also been in touch. He has no favorites.
