One of the top defensive tackles in North Carolina has picked a number of offers over the past month and Friday Clemson offered when he made an unofficial visit to Tigertown.

"Oh man, I had a great time," 6-2, 330 pound Curtis Porter told CUTIgers.com. "It was just another good experience. It was very nice and it was close [to home]." Clemson assistant coach Chris Rumph made a big impression on the rising star.

"I got to talk with coach Rumph, coach Vic and a lot of people. Coach Rumph is a funny, funny man. He likes to joke around, but when it is time for business he is all business," said Porter.

With his senior season quickly approaching, the summer visit tour may be over.

"I don't have any others planned right now. I am just going to take it easy. I might make something, but I don't have anything planned."

Although Curtis just transferred to Victory Christian, he knows former Victory Christian standout and current Clemson defensive end Kourtnei Brown.

"He is a cool guy. I like him a lot," said Porter.

The talented defender is excited about moving to Victory Christian.

"It was the best decision I have made. It will be nice to be around Christians. It will be good to be around people that believe in the lord. It will be nice to be in an environment where they don't curse. It will be good to be around people that do things the right way," said Porter.

When asked about his current favorites, Porter responded, "I like Miami, Florida, Florida State, Rutgers and Clemson. I like some others as well."

Did the visit to Tigertown help the Tiger's chances?

"Oh yeah, it definitely helped," replied Porter.

There is not timetable for a commitment, but it should come before December.

"I really don't have a timetable. I will try to wrap it up as soon as possible. I am trying to graduate early," said Porter.

Will distance be important to where the Victory Christian standout will play ball?

"No, distance is not important," replied Porter.
