6-0, 205 pound running back prospect Eugene Sowell traveled to Clemson Saturday to see Death Valley for the first time. "It was a real good visit. I had a real good time. It was a great game and they had a nice crowd," Sowell told CUTigers.com.
The Sowell also family enjoyed the visit to Tiger Town. "I came up with my mom and dad. They had a nice time. It was my first trip to Clemson. They enjoyed it," he said.
The Shades Valley standout also had the opportunity to speak a good bit with the Clemson coaching staff. "They wanted me to keep in touch. They wanted to see where I am on my list. They wanted me to keep them in mind. They said it would be a place for me. We had a good talk," Sowell said.
The talented running back is now talking about taking an official visit to Clemson.
"I will definitely be back for an official visit," he said. "I'm not sure when just yet. I was hoping I could come back next weekend for the Florida State game, but I can't make that one.
"I am also going to take official visits to Louisville, Auburn and LSU. I am going to Louisville the weekend after next."
The Alabama standout was impressed with the Tigers' offensive scheme more than anything else. "It was great. They had a lot of run and pass plays. I don't mind playing at receiver and they line up the running backs at receiver some. I also like that they keep rotating the running backs. A lot of schools just stay with one guy. It gives you an advantage to keep putting in someone fresh," he said
And what will the prize recruit consider when deciding where to attend college next year?
"I will just look at the academics first," he said. "We got to talk to the academic advisor today. He had a lot of good things to say. I will look at which way the team is heading. Are they going in a good direction? I will also look for a place that I can just fit in."
We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding running back from Alabama, right up through signing day.
