6-4, 250 pound tight end prospect Foxy Foxworth traveled to Clemson last weekend for an official visit. "It went great," Foxworth said of the trip. "I don't know what to say. It was a lot of fun."
New tight ends coach Billy Napier showed the tight end prospect what Clemson had to offer on Saturday. "I met with Coach Napier on Saturday morning. He took us to see Vickery Hall," he said. "I met with some of the academic people. We went to lunch. I got to be with Barry Richardson, who went to my high school.
"That night I went to dinner with coach Napier, coach Scott and Barry. Coach Bowden was at dinner at the same restaurant. He came by to talk with us."
"I also met with Coach Spence. He talked about how much they use the tight end at Clemson."
The Wando standout had planned to walk-on at South Carolina this fall, but he left Tiger Town this weekend with Clemson on his mind. "It definitely opened my eyes. It made me realize that Clemson is a very good option. They have a great program, but it was mainly the people. All of the coaches are great guys," he said.
Clemson did not offer Foxworth a scholarship, but the Tigers did offer him the chance to win one in the future. "They told me they had filled up their scholarships at tight end for this year," he said. "But they said I could come in as a preferred walk-on. They said if I came in and worked hard I could win a scholarship next year. That is the same thing I am hearing from South Carolina."
The Gamecocks will get the next official visit. "I am going to South Carolina this weekend. I think that is the plan. I am definitely going, but I'm not sure if it will be this weekend or the next. I am waiting for confirmation on which weekend."
The talented tight end should have a decision in the next few weeks. "I will make my decision after my South Carolina visit," he added.
