OLB Chris Register Profile
The Dudley High School [Greensboro, N.C.] junior was among the several highly touted prospects visiting Tigertown on Saturday.
"I had a great time," he told CUTigers.
Register added, "This time, instead of being around the facilities all the time, they gave us a tour around the campus. And we got to see Vickery Hall."
While in town this time, he also spoke with nearly every coach on the Clemson staff.
What was the message from defensive coordinator Brent Venables?
"He wants me. That's pretty much what he was saying."
And how about the word from head coach Dabo Swinney?
"He was saying it would be great to have me, stuff like that. We talked 1-on-1, too."
Clemson is in firm position with the No. 9 outside linebacker in the class of 2014.
"That homey feeling [sticks out]. I've talked to these coaches since my recruitment started. Coach Mike Reed started recruiting me at State, now he's over there, so we've been talking ever since my recruiting started," Register said.
Along with Clemson, two other schools are standing out to him.
"They're near the top because -- between them, Carolina and State -- they're the only schools that are really showing me the same amount of interest right now," Register said. "But that's going to change after Wednesday. All the schools are going to be looking at 2014 stronger."
As a junior, he had 110 tackles, seven sacks, two interceptions, five forced fumbles and three pass breakups.
In nine games as a sophomore, Register had 90 tackles, 10 sacks, five forced fumbles, four interceptions, and three pass break-ups.
