CUTigers caught up with 4-star 2018 Florence, SC prospect Xavier Thomas and took a moment to get a few of his thoughts and comments on his recent visit to Clemson. Thomas is holding offers from a host of Power Five schools, including FSU, Alabama and USC. This is a national prospect and arguably the #1 overall player in the state for 2018. Here is what he had to say:
"This visit was amazing! From the second I got there all the way to the second I left, Clemson was great. I was always impressed about something, no matter what it was. I got close with coach Dabo Swinney also. He came to me during their spring practice for about 10 minutes and talked to me more about the program and about Clemson. I also got to know more of the other coaches better. Coach Dabo mainly talked about he never wanted to just have a good football team. He wanted to have a good football program. He has had 135 seniors and 129 of them graduated with a degree, which he takes very seriously. Clemson is also building a whole new facility connected to the new practice facility that will have a bowling alley, new weight-room, new players lounge, etc., which will be done by next January. They also toured and showed us where we would be staying as freshman and the apartment was very nice. Also they showed us the academic center where we would be studying and have to spend 10 hours there each week. I cannot wait to visit back to Clemson! Clemson is just something special. How could you not like Clemson?"
