A rising junior at Champagnat Catholic School in Hialeah, Florida, Salomon was joined by his head coach, Mike Tunsil, and teammate four-star teammate Chidi Okeke-Valentine.

"It was a great trip. That was my first time being up there," Salomon recently said, during an interview with CUTigers.

"I didn't really know much about Clemson. It was a surprise, because I didn't know about the rock and everything. They showed me up there and let me take a picture. They gave me a tour around everything."

The 6-foot-3, 180-pound wide receiver is rated with four stars and is the No. 24 overall prospect in the country.

"I loved the [Clemson] campus," Salomon said. "There was a lot to do. I've never been golfing. I'd like to do that. There's a great golf course on campus. There's fishing and everything at the lake. It was good."

He also enjoyed working with wide receivers coach Jeff Scott.

"He's one of the best receiver coaches I've ever seen," Salomon said. "He takes time, helps you on little things, getting your stance right, how to come off the ball and everything. He's one of those coaches that takes time into the day to help you out."

As a sophomore, Salomon had 47 catches for 896 yards with nine touchdowns.
