Offered QB enjoys first visit

Last fall, Clemson offered DeAndre Johnson, one of the top 2015 quarterbacks. After last weekend's over-night visit, he gave trip No. 1 to Tigertown a glowing review.

Johnson was in town on Saturday.

"It was very nice, very through. I loved everything about it," he told CUTigers on Monday.

What stood out the most?

"I would say, the staff, the players there -- I loved the facilities. You can go there and you just feel at home, it feels like family. And just the way they treat, they treat you with hospitality."


Before camping at Clemson, DeAndre Johnson, visited Florida State.
During the morning practice at the Dabo Swinney Football Camp, the 6-foot, 170-pound prospect worked out for offensive coordinator Chad Morris.

"It was great," Johnson said. "Coach Morris is a great coach. I learned more from him in one session than, probably, two days -- he's a very good QB coach. He pays attention to detail. He's a good coach."

Florida State hosted him before the Clemson visit. Trips to Alabama, Auburn and Florida are in the works. He could head back to Clemson as early as July.

His current offers include UConn, Florida, Florida State, North Carolina, South Florida and UCLA.

As a freshman at First Coast High School in Jacksonville, Fla., Johnson completed 159 of 283 passes for 2,912 yards with 32 touchdowns.

He also rushed for 212 yards and four scores.
