2016 Safety/Cornerback KJ Chamberlain (Greenwood, S.C.) out of Emerald High School took some time to update CUTigers on his weekend visit.

"I liked meeting the coaches. They really make you feel like you are family. I like Coach Reed, because he really showed the most interest and told me a lot of things about the school and team," said Chamberlain.

For the cornerback there were a lot of sights to be found around campus as well.

"Their facilities are amazing. The indoor practice facility was great, and I like how they're building onto it in the future," stated Chamberlain.

Clemson fans have grown familiar with Emerald High School in recent months with the signing of co-defensive star Gage Cervenka at defensive tackle.

Chamberlain noted his connection with his former teammate by saying, "It was a great two years playing with him. We had a great connection on and off the field. We've had the discussion before about playing together in college. I would love to reunite with him to play again."

Chamberlain knows he poses a threat on the football field. He talked about his skill set in saying, "I react to the ball quickly, and I get downhill. The coaches loved how I could move around with my size. When Coach Reed and I talked, he said he would move me to corner for my size and speed. I feel like I would fit great into their defensive scheme."

It's still relatively early in the recruiting game for Chamberlain, but he already has his eyes set on a few schools.

"My favorites so far are South Carolina, Clemson and Wake Forest," said Chamberlain.

As far as visits go Chamberlain isn't done just yet.

"Coastal Carolina invited me to their camp. Hopefully I'll be able to make it to that one," continued Chamberlain.

Chamberlain is listed at 6-foot-2 and 194 pounds. He has not yet been rated by Scout, but has flashed his potential on the field as he led the state of South Carolina with 14 interceptions in his junior campaign.
