DT Kwamelle Barnes Profile
Kwamelle Barnes and Dexter Wideman were both impressed with what they saw on their first visit to Tigertown.
Barnes told CUTigers recently that the duo spoke with a couple of the coaches while they were on the trip.
"I talked to coach [Charlie] Harbison, coach [Jeff] Scott. I really didn't get a chance to talk with Dabo Swinney, but he talked to the whole group," Barnes said.
Harbison, who serves as the primary recruiter for Saluda High School, shared some positive words with the duo.
"Coach Harbison was saying what a good our head coach is we're playing for at Saluda High. He was saying what a great coach and a great man he is," Barnes said. "He said he'll always be there for us."
What stood out about the visit?
"The main thing that stood out to me was looking at the rock. The players touch it before every game. That's what stood out to me."
Along with Clemson, South Carolina, North Carolina and Duke are expressing interest.
As a sophomore, Barnes had 37 tackles, three sacks, seven tackles for loss and two recovered fumbles.
