DT Lamont Gaillard Profile

Lamont Gaillard, the No. 18 ranked defensive tackle in the class of 2014, hadn't been to Clemson before Saturday's visit.

"It was good. I had fun looking at the new stuff around there," he told CUTigers on Sunday.

What stood out?

"The new facility, the new indoor facility. I saw the way they practice. That was pretty cool. They were really intense. I liked that."

While in town, Gaillard spoke with defensive coordinator Brent Venables and defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks.

Gaillard was not offered during the visit. But one could be on the way in the near future.

"It's different, because they have offered so many people the last year, so this year's it's pretty hard for them to give out [class of] 2014 offered scholarships," he said. "It would be a surprise. They said if I was to get offered they would call on Monday."

Gaillard had plenty of good things to say about Clemson.

"They're always good," he said. "I just like how their coaches are all intense during practice, so are the players. And I felt comfortable while I was there.

"It would be something I'd have to think about if I got an offer from them."

Alabama, East Carolina, Florida State, N.C. State and South Carolina have offered.

Who leads?

"I'm not going to say it, because people will think I'm committing there…I want to be patient about it."

Gaillard ended his junior season with 108 tackles, seven tackles for a loss and four sacks.
