Drew Traylor, a 6-5, 220 pound defensive end prospect and current verbal commitment to Clemson, enjoyed his weekend visit to Clemson even though he had to cut it short because of a basketball commitment.

"It was a lot of fun. I had to leave early because we had a basketball game. I left at halftime," Traylor told CUTigers.com.

The game day atmosphere for the Palmetto rivalry impressed the Alabama standout.

"I was really impressed. It was a great atmosphere. I was really surprised at how many people came and didn't even go to the game," he said. "There were people everywhere just watching in on television. I saw people looking through the tunnel to see what they could see."

The talented defensive end believes his teammate, future 4-star lineman Tyler Love, also enjoyed the visit to Death Valley.

"He liked it a lot," Traylor said. "He was really impressed. I had been telling him to come up and see what it is like at Clemson. He didn't have to leave early like we did. Our families took separate cars on the trip. They followed us up there."

The talented defensive end also said he plans on hitting the weights hard over the course of the next few months.

"I am just working on gaining some weight right now," Traylor said. "It is going to be hard with basketball. I want to be at about 240 pounds or above when I get to Clemson. I am at about 225 now."
