Just prior to Bryson Allen-Williams' first trip to Clemson, Tiger defensive ends coach Marion Hobby stopped by Cedar Grove High School [Ellenwood] to drop off an offer.

"He came by the school before the N.C. State game. He couldn't really talk to me, but he was just telling the coaches that they were offering me," Allen-Williams said in a recent interview with CUTigers.

The No. 20 outside linebacker in the class of 2014, according to, also weighed in on his first visit to Clemson.

"I really liked the game day atmosphere at Clemson. They were really focused on a lot of other 2014 recruits that were there. But I really liked the game day experience," he said. "I really liked how the fans treated the players and the recruits. The fans really love the recruits and everything. They were really into recruiting. I really like them. It's a nice atmosphere, a nice football atmosphere."

Allen-Williams thinks highly of Hobby, who serves as his primary recruiter to Clemson.

"I really like what he's doing to the defensive line at Clemson," Allen-Williams said. "They're very productive. If I went to Clemson, I really, probably, wouldn't play defensive line. I would probably play linebacker, but I really like what he's done with the defensive line."

Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida and N.C. State also hosted Allen-Williams for game day visits this past season.

The 6-foot-2, 213-pound junior holds 17 offers. He listed Clemson, South Carolina, Florida, UCLA, USC, Georgia Tech, N.C. State and Tennessee among his favorites, in particular order.

"Those are the top schools that I really like right now," he said.

As a junior, Allen-Williams registered 99 tackles and 18 sacks. Top Stories
