Four-star wide receiver pledge Artavis Scott was back in Clemson late last month for his first visit since committing at The Opening.

It was also the first game day visit to Clemson for the East Lake High School senior.

"It was good. It was a good experience. It was my first game and it was a big game at that, so it was a good time," Scott told CUTigers in a recent interview.

He added, "It was amazing. I've never seen anything like it. Just seeing the game day excitement, with all those people there, it was amazing. I loved it."

Not only did Scott spend time with fellow Clemson commitments Deshaun Watson and Demarre Kitt, he caught up with plenty of coaches, too.

"I talked to all of the coaches. When I come up there, we don't need to talk about [recruiting]," Scott said. "We just have a good time. We catch up a little bit. It was great. I had fun with all of the coaches."

He also spent time as a tour guide.

"I just hung out with those guys and showed my cousins around, showed them everything," Scott said.

Ranked by Scout.com as the No. 25 wide receiver in the class of 2014, Scott picked Clemson over Florida, UCF, Michigan and Ohio State.

A number of factors led to his decision to go with the Tigers.

"Because it was a good fit for me, I knew that me going there was the right thing to do," Scott said. "When I saw it, I just knew that something about it felt like home. I felt like it was a place I knew I could be and spend time playing."

When did he know that Clemson was the place for him?

"As soon as I went there the second time -- the first time I went there, I was thinking, ‘This is nice.' It was always in the back of my head. When I went there again I knew it. I knew it was the place to be."

The competition is still lurking.

"Of course, they're still recruiting me," Scott said, when asked about other schools still pursuing him. But he wouldn't go any further when asked about specifics.

"I'd rather not say, but it's still a lot," he said.

Clemson will host him for at least two more visits.

"I'll be back for my official, obviously. And I'm going back up for the Florida State game," Scott said.

Tony Elliott serves as his primary recruiter.

Through two games this season, Scott has caught eight passes for 98 yards and 17 rushes for 157 yards with three scores. He also has 90 kick return yards.
