The 6-foot, 175-pound four-star spoke with Reed afterwards.

"[Reed] asked how many offers that I had. I told him how many, I had eight at the time. He said, ‘You can add Clemson to your list.' I was surprised. We were just talking about it," Warrior told CUTigers later that night.

The surprise was a very pleasant one.

"I used to love Clemson. There was just something about Clemson that I loved," Warrior said.

Warrior has never visited Clemson, but he's seen them on TV plenty of times.

"I don't know what it is really, I just used to always love watching Clemson," he said. "They know how to win. They know how to play physically and they also use all their players. I just watched them when I was growing up."

Westlake is the same school that former Clemson cornerback Darius Robinson attended.

"He came up two weeks ago, before he got [signed] and we were just talking about how my first offer was from Ohio State and how he played, how it is in Clemson," Warrior said.

Eleven schools have offered Warrior, who also picked up offers from Louisville and Georgia on Thursday.

The only school that's hosted Warrior for a visit is Georgia and that was a few weeks ago for the spring game.

"I want to take a visit to Ohio State. I also want to take a visit to Clemson. I hear they have a nice campus," he said.

As a sophomore, Warrior had 61 tackles, one interception, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
