Clemson linebacker commitment Kendall Joseph was one of several highly touted prospects on campus for Saturday's 38-35 win over Georgia.

His thoughts are in line with every other prospect that CUTigers has been in touch with since Saturday night.

"It was awesome. It was the best game that I've ever been to," Joseph said. "That atmosphere was crazy. The crowd was just crazy. It was loud for all four quarters.

"The team really responded well and they played hard. I loved it."

Joseph, a senior at nearby Belton Honea-Path High School, was one of several 2014 Clemson commitments that attended the game. Fellow linebacker commitments Chris Register and Korie Rogers were there, too.

Watching the Tigers' current linebackers was a treat for Joseph.

"You could just see they had a lot of effort. Regardless of what they were doing, they were playing 100 percent," Joseph said. "[Spencer] Shuey, he's a great tackler. He made all of the plays inside the box. Stephone Anthony was good, too."

Defensive coordinator Brent Venables played seven linebackers during the game. Joseph, of course, enjoyed seeing that.

"[Venables] told me he likes rotate guys in and out," Joseph said.

They spoke after the game.

"[Venables] was just asking me about the night before and how I played. He was just telling me about practice over the past week or so and how the defense looked," Joseph said. "I knew the defense was going to be ready, so I was proud of them."

With plans to be at as many Clemson home games as possible this fall, Joseph thinks big things are in store for the Tigers.

"There's no reason we shouldn't go undefeated and beat South Carolina," he said. "The sky is the limit for us. I feel like Clemson controls their own destiny right now.

"We've just got to stay focused and be hungry like we were against Georgia."
