The Sandy Creek High School senior recently spoke with CUTigers about all of those topics, starting with the Georgia visit.

"I got there at 12, so I got to experience GameDay and everything. It was an exciting day. There were a lot of fans," Kitt said.

While in town, he spent time with fellow Clemson commitments Deshaun Watson and Milan Richard, plus D.J. Smith and Raekwon McMillan.

"We were all just kicking it down there in the coach's office. I was with Deshaun most of the time," Kitt said.

Then, there was the game. Though Kitt's been inside Death Valley for a number of other games, he certainly was impressed with this trip.

"That was the best environment I've been to out of all my visits anywhere, even Tennessee, because Tennessee has the most fans," Kitt said. "Everybody came and was ready to support everybody."

That, he said, was the only recruiting pitch he used that weekend for guys like Smith and McMillan, both of whom are high on the 2014 Clemson wish list.

"We just let the game recruit," Kitt said. "And everything else will just fall into place."

For Kitt, the Clemson win meant bragging rights.

"I like to brag about it," he said. "It felt good for them to win, because I had been talking about it all week. People really didn't believe they were going to win.

"They were like, ‘Why did you choose Clemson out of the schools you could have went to?' Now, I finally get to say, that's why."

He'll be back to Tigertown later this fall.

"I know I'm taking my official for sure for the Florida State game, but I'll probably get back up for a few more games before that," Kitt said.

As for other schools that are still in touch with him, there are a few.

"Florida State hit me up, Ole Miss sometimes, but I don't really get back because I'm committed right now. I'll be enrolling in January," Kitt said.

Through three games this season, Kitt has caught 11 passes for 123 yards and a touchdown. He also has 29 punt return yards.
