First visit to Clemson

Three-star wide receiver Braxton Berrios made his first visit to Clemson late last month when the Tigers took on their rival from Columbia.

The Leesville Road High School [Raleigh, N.C.] junior had been to only one other college campus during the 2012 season -- South Carolina.

Berrios detailed his Clemson trip.

"We got in there and they took us around to the weight room, the locker room, the training room and everything. That was pretty standard. That was cool. I'd never seen anything, because I'd never been down to Clemson, so everything was new to me," he told CUTigers in a recent interview.

Overall, his Clemson trip "was a good experience."

Berrios' recruiter of record, Robbie Caldwell, was close by throughout the pregame visit.

"He basically walked me through everything," Berrios said. "He even walked me through the coaches' offices and took me a little bit more behind the scenes than the normal tours."

What was the message from Caldwell?

"Not much, mainly just game-related stuff, what they were trying to do, basically the game plan [and] what they were trying execute."

The game day experience in Clemson was a memorable one for the No. 58 wide receiver in the class of 2014.

"The atmosphere was second to none. Coming down the hill was awesome and, of course, the game was wild," Berrios said.

Caldwell stopped through Berrios' school last Wednesday.

"He talked to my coach. He came after school, so I didn't even see him…I haven't asked my coach what all was talked about," Berrios said.

But it does appear that Clemson could be close to offering.

"The last I talked to my coach, he said they were very interested. My coach believes that they're going to offer me in the next month or two," Berrios said. "There is interest there from me. And I think there is interest in me from Clemson, so I wouldn't be surprised, but I have no clue."

South Carolina, North Carolina, ECU and N.C. State have also been by the school to see Berrios, who has eight offers. The three-star prospect has no favorites.

As a junior, he scored 34 touchdowns, rushed for 1,200 yards and had 750 receiving yards. Top Stories
