OG Brandon Kennedy Profile
The Wetumpka High School [Ala.] junior visited Clemson in March for Junior Day.
"They have a beautiful campus. The coaches were nice. I got to talk to coach [Dabo] Swinney, because my wide receivers coach has a good relationship with him, so he told coach Swinney about me. I went down there and he saw me in person," Kennedy told CUTigers, during a recent interview.
What was Swinney's message?
"We were just kind of getting to know each other. He just introduced me to the other coaches, said I was welcome back whenever I wanted to."
Kennedy, who checks in at 6-2, 275 pounds, has plans to be back in Clemson later this summer.
"I want to go back up there for the cookout they're having. I think it's in July. I'm pretty sure I'm going to go to that," he said.
There are a few other stops that will be made this summer.
"I'm going to try and visit Missouri and Duke. I'm going to try to visit those schools, and probably Tennessee," Kennedy said.
All of those schools have offered, as have Georgia Tech, Louisville and Mississippi State.
"I don't have a top five, or any top schools," Kennedy aid. "I'm just going to try to wait until the summer to narrow down my list."
What factors will be considered?
"Academics and, obviously, how good they are in football. And just how good the o-line coach is, how many players they're putting out in the league and how well they're doing."
Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell maintains a line of communication.
"We e-mail back and forth. He just tells me he wants me to come up there, hang out and get to know him and stuff," Kennedy said.
When it comes to making a decision, Kennedy isn't in too big of a hurry to make one.
"It might be before the season, but I'm not sure," he said.
