and the new weight room area that is expected to be ready by July.
"This football program is amazing and this atmosphere is great," he said.
"I really liked everything I saw."

"Once again everything here at Clemson is amazing. I got to talk to all
the coaches. All of them seem like nice guys and I would love to play for
them one day."

and it looks like they are all motivated," he said. "It looks like they
all want to go for the same thing and have a great season. Hopefully, they
