Instate DE with Clemson offer

One of the top prospects in South Carolina's class of 2015 has offers from both Clemson and South Carolina.

In November, the Gamecocks were first to offer Orangeburg-Wilkinson High School sophomore Albert Huggins. The Tigers weren't far behind, coming through with their offer about a week later.

"It was a great honor. At the time, they were top 10 schools. It was a great honor, because I want to be able to get the opportunity to get offers. That's a dream for a football player. Just to be a sophomore, a lot of people are proud," Huggins recently told CUTigers.

The 6-foot-3, 250-pound prospect visited both schools. He was in Tigertown for the South Carolina and Virginia Tech games.

What stood out?

"First, the crowd. The crowd was amazing. I was impressed by the crowd. It was a good game, especially, the South Carolina game. I know they lost, but they put up a good fight."

Huggins was in Columbia for the Wofford game.

"It wasn't as hype as Clemson was, but it was a pretty good experience. [Jadeveon] Clowney had a good game. I like watching him," he said.

This spring, he hopes to visit Georgia. Huggins grew up pulling for the Bulldogs.

"They just have a good program, a good football team. I like watching them," Huggins said.

As a sophomore, Huggins had 64 tackles, four sacks and three fumble recoveries [one went for a touchdown].
