DT Sam Hammond Profile
Saturday afternoon Clemson became the first school to offer Union star defensive tackle Sam Hammond.
"Clemson offered me Saturday," he said. "They are my only offer right now. I am also hearing from Georgia, Tennessee, Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina State and Virginia"
The 6-4, 290 pound prospect traveled to Clemson Saturday to watch the Tigers first practice of the spring.
"It was good. I liked talking with the coaches. I also had a chance to talk with some of the players," he said.
Several members of the Clemson staff spoke with Hammond during the visit.
"I talked with coach Rumph, coach Powell, coach Blackwell and coach Bowden while I was there," he said. "They just asked me how I was doing. They asked me how my grades were going this year."
What did the Union standout like best about the Junior Day visit?
"I liked seeing the players in action at practice. I also liked watching the coaches during practice," replied Hammond.
When asked about his leader, Hammond responded, "Clemson is my leader. They have been the ones looking at me the most. They are close to home."
Don't expect a commitment over the next few months from Hammond.
"I am going to wait a while. I will probably make my decision before my season," stated Hammond.
The talented defender plans a couple of other visits over the next few weeks.
"I am going to try to make it down to Georgia on March 24th. I am going to Tennessee on March 31," said the star defensive tackle.
The prize recruit plans to camp somewhere this summer, but the destination is not clear yet.
"I will probably go to one camp. I am not sure which one yet," said Hammond.
