6-4, 220 pound defensive end prospect Travian Robertson made his second visit to Clemson in just a few weeks.

"It was good," he told afterwards. "I enjoyed the visit. I went up with my dad and my strength/TE coach," Robertson told

The main purpose of the visit was for the 4-star defender and his father to have a chance to meet with head coach Tommy Bowden.

"It was real good. We sat down and had lunch with coach Bowden," he said. "Then we went and toured things and came back to talk with him again.

"We talked about academics. We talked about how important that is. We talked about how Clemson is a great environment. He told my dad they would take good care of me if I come to Clemson.

Clemson defensive line coach Chris Rumph also spent most of the afternoon with his prize recruit.

"Coach Rumph spent a lot of time with us today and that was great," Robertson said. "We saw the apartments where some of the players live. We also just toured around campus."

Travian's father enjoyed the trip to Tigertown.

"My dad enjoyed the visit," stated Robertson.

What was the highlight of the visit for the Scotland High standout? "It would be just talking with coach Bowden. I really enjoyed that," replied Robertson.

The recruiting world will find out where one of the nation's best defensive ends plans to play later this week at a press conference.

"I will announce my decision this week at a press conference at school. It will probably be Thursday, but we need to confirm that," he added.

At the present time, it is believed that Clemson holds a commanding lead for Robertson's service. Top Stories
