Time to go to work

Four-star defensive tackle Albert Huggins has some work to do out on the recruiting trail. So far, he's only visited Clemson and South Carolina.

The Orangeburg-Wilkinson High School junior said that's going to change in the not too distant future.

"It's time to hustle right now. I've got to hustle. I've got to get to a lot of different schools. For the past two years, I've been to Clemson and Carolina. Now, it's time for me to hustle…it's time to put on the jets and start running," he said, during a recent interview with CUTigers.com.

Huggins, the No. 7 ranked defensive tackle in the class of 2015, has offers from plenty of schools from outside of the Palmetto State, including Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Louisville, UNC and Tennessee.

The 6-foot-2, 280-pound prospect wants to see a few of those schools. That's why he's not naming any favorites until then.

"All these rumors, Clemson or Carolina are going to pick you up, they only say that because I've been to Clemson and Carolina," Huggins said. "So I have to get out and see more schools, so I can make a top five or make a top 10."

Clemson hosted Huggins for the Florida State game. South Carolina had him in for the Clemson game.

Huggins weighed in on the game in Columbia.

"It was a very good game all the way up until the end, then Clemson started turning over the ball. It was a very interesting game," he said. "The atmosphere was amazing. The fans were crazy. It was an overall good game."

Did the result match his prediction before the game?

"I said all week that I really didn't know, to tell you the truth. I knew it was going to be a good match, and I knew Clemson was going to go out there and give it all and Carolina was going to go out there and give their all. Hey, mistakes happen in the game. You just have to live with that. It was still a good game."

As a junior, Huggins had 10 sacks and three forced fumbles.
