DL Albert Huggins Profile
He's already got plenty of college options -- Clemson, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Florida State, UNC and Tennessee are on his offer sheet.
So why in the world would the Orangeburg-Wilkinson defensive lineman want to participate in every practice last week during the Dabo Swinney Football Camp?
The answer is simple.
"You'll never be perfect, but you'll try to be perfect. I'll go up there every year and try to learn more. I learned how the work ethic is up there and stuff like that," Huggins recently told CUTigers in an interview.
He added, "I could just cool it, just go up there and look. I like to show these coaches I'm here to work, if I do go to Clemson.
"If I do go to Clemson, they'll already know what they're working with."
Huggins gave the three-day camp stop high marks.
"I had a great experience. It was very, very good…they talked to me and gave me some good advice -- the coaching staff did for the future," he said.
The 6-foot-3, 280-pound prospect worked out with defensive ends coach Marion Hobby, who serves as Huggins' primary recruiter for Clemson.
"He loves me, man. He showed me things that I didn't know. If I didn't know things, he showed me what I had to do," Huggins said.
Head coach Dabo Swinney also spent time with Huggins.
"We just talked about the school mostly and how can go on and on about the school and how the school is...he said you can come there and get an education. That's what really stood out about it," Huggins said.
Later this summer, he hopes to take a few more visits, but nothing has been scheduled.
As a sophomore, Huggins recorded 64 tackles, four sacks and a fumble recovery for a touchdown.
Always room for improvement
