OT Austin Clark Profile
One of those guests was Austin Clark, a three-star from Rockbridge County High School in Lexington, Va.
"I definitely came away impressed from it. I went down there with high expectations and I walked away really impressed," he told CUTigers on Saturday night, after wrapping up the visit.
It was his first visit to Clemson.
"Everything about it really, the facilities, the coaching staff, the stadium of course, it was really cool to see in person," Clark said. "It was different seeing it in person than on TV."
While in town, Clark spoke with a number of Clemson coaches, including offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell.
"Right off the bat, I really felt at home," Clark said. "I'd never been there before, but as soon as I got there, pretty much all the coaches knew my name before I could introduce myself, so I thought that was really cool. I talked to coach Caldwell a lot.
"Their message to me was they want me a lot. They want me to keep up my good grades in school and just keep up everything. They just really want me there."
Ranked by Scout.com as the No. 34 offensive tackle in the class of 2015, Clark will be on another college campus next weekend.
"Right now, the only thing I have set in stone is I'm going to Virginia Tech next weekend," he said, "But I'm also planning on going to Tennessee, Penn State and Ohio State, but the only thing I know for sure is I'm going to Tech's junior day."
