He visited earlier this year for the spring game then again over the summer for the Dabo Swinney Football Camp. The experience gets better with each visit.
"It was fun. I liked it a lot. It feels more like home every time I've been up there," Whitley recently told CUTigers.
What stands out about Clemson?
"The coaching staff, the atmosphere and the facilities, and of course Clemson University. It's a good school."
Offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell and defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison spoke with the 6-foot-4, 290-pound prospect.
"Coach Caldwell was glad I came up there. He likes the way I play and he likes my body style."
An offer could be in the works.
"They said they were going to come to a game in November, I think," Whitley said. "It could come then."
Whitley visited N.C. State last weekend. A trip to Georgia Tech could be in the works this weekend.
Tennessee, LSU, Mississippi State, Notre Dame and Florida State have also been in contact.
Clemson, like most schools, prefers Whitley as a guard. He plays left tackle for North Augusta.
