FIVE-STAR LB: "Loudest game ever"

The No. 2 ranked OLB in 2015, was in Clemson on Saturday night. It was the second Tigertown trip for the five-star prospect.

And it was one of the best game day experiences he's ever had, if not the best.

"It was the loudest game. That was probably the loudest game I've ever been to. That game was crazy. I've never experienced something like that in my entire life," Ricky DeBerry told CUTigers earlier this week. "Words can't explain how incredible the game was. That's all I can say."

Visiting with the Clemson coaches was a real treat, too. Dabo Swinney and Brent Venables both spoke to DeBerry and his family.

In fact, the interaction with Swinney on Saturday could go a long way in helping out Clemson's push for a signature on signing day in 2015.

"I definitely like coach Swinney a lot. He's definitely a players coach. It definitely helps their chances with me," DeBerry said. "Coach Swinney is definitely a players' coach. I love what he does with his players and how he can relate to some of his players, which helps him get some of the best recruits in the country.

"It, overall, was a great experience for me and my family."

During his first visit to Clemson back in June, the St. Christopher's School [Richmond, Va.] junior spent the day with Venables. They spoke at length again on Saturday.

"Pretty much, he loves my play. He definitely wants me to be a Clemson Tiger. He coaches players like me to be the best players they can be and send them off to the NFL," DeBerry said. "That was, pretty much, his message to me."

A few other schools are in line to receive game day visits this fall.

"I definitely want to get to Tennessee for a game. UVA, Virginia Tech, I'm definitely trying to get to a Florida game, Florida and South Carolina. Those are on my hit list," DeBerry said.

With 44 offers to his name, DeBerry has no list of favorites.

"I'll probably narrow it down sometime after this season," he said. "I just want to get to a few more schools before I do any narrowing down to my list. But that's pretty much how I'm doing it."
