"I just got back from Clemson. It was great," said Long. "It was a long drive there and back but as far as the camp it was great. I talked and worked out with Coach Swinney. I liked him a lot. I had met him before since I have been down there a couple of times. I also met with Coach Smith who recruits my area. I also talked with Coach Bowden and Coach Blackwell."

The Clemson camp really stood out for the talented athlete from the Tar Heel state. "I'm not sure if it was the coaches. They were a lot more hands on and they worked with me one on one. I got to go study film with Coach Swinney and he really broke it down to a perfect science. It was more understandable and more fun."

When asked if he learned anything at camp, the 6-3, 195 pound prospect responded, "I learned a lot actually. They run a pretty good camp."

The offer list stands at one for the talented prospect but that should change over the coming months as Long show the college recruiters that he is recovering from an ACL injury. "I haven't gotten any new offers since Louisville. Clemson, North Carolina State, Virginia, Nebraska, Duke, Marshall, Auburn and Carolina are all showing interest."

Coach Swinney was impressed with the speedster's quick recovery. "I'm doing great. The doctor released me about 2 weeks ago to start working out again. I had been doing some things on my own for about a month. Coach Swinney said he was very impressed with the way I was running my routes. He couldn't tell I was just released from my surgery."

The summer camp tour is just beginning for the North Carolina star receiver. "I'm heading to State next week. Then I have a one day camp at Duke and a one day camp at Virginia."

Long is working hard with his South Brunswick teammates to prepare for the upcoming season. "Right now we are trying to get a passing league together. Our quarterback is playing region ball so we are having a hard time. We've been doing weights and going out and practicing 7-on-7. We start official practice in July."
