Jordan Hatton is emerging as one of the most sought-after prospects in Kentucky's junior class. The Lexington Catholic receiver recently visited Clemson and Illinois.
Clemson hosted Jordan Hatton last weekend when they took on Boston College. The entire trip was a success for the 6-foot-5, 190-pound receiver.
"Clemson went great. I loved everything," said Hatton. "I got to talk to everyone and I think I would fit in good with their offense," he said.
The overall atmosphere at Clemson was very impressive to Hatton.
"The fans at Clemson love that team so much. The atmosphere was like a big family," he continued.
The Tigers wanted Hatton back again this weekend when they faced Florida State, but Hatton had other plans.
"I had promised Coach Golesh at Illinois that I was going there. I really like those guys too," he said.
Hatton saw the Illini take on Wisconsin yesterday and was pleased with the entire visit.
"I really like Coach Bellamy and Coach Golesh. Things wen very well. I really like the stadium and the coaches. I could see myself (playing) there," he continued.
The environment was one of the things that stood out for Hatton.
"That was the first Big Ten game I've been to. The environment was different. They really care about their players," he said.
Despite the outcome of the game, Hatton left with a favorable impression.
"The game didn't go well (for Illinois) but I think those guys are building something special. They are a really good group of coaches," he finished.
