What was the highlight of the visit?
Linthicum: It would probably dinner last night in the WestZone club. I sat with those three and a couple of the players. Then we went over to coach Bowden's house for desert.

What did the coaches tell you during the visit?
Linthicum: It was great talking with them today. They told me they are really looking forward to me coming to Clemson. They said they are happy that I am enrolling early.
