OT Zach DeBell Profile
CUTigers recently caught up with Tarpon Springs (Fla.) offensive tackle Zach DeBell after he was on campus in Tigertown Tuesday.
"I really liked it. I got to see coach (Dabo) Swinney and got to meet all of the coaches," DeBell said.
He spent most of his afternoon touring the campus with defensive end coach Chris Rumphand director of high school operations Mike Dooley.
The highlight of the trip was seeing Howard's Rock with Rumph.
"We went to go see it, touch it or whatever. No. 71, the jersey, was laying right there on the rock," DeBell said. "I was like, ‘Coach, what is that. It's a jersey lying out there.' He was like, ‘Yea, it fell out of the sky.' I didn't think anything of it at first.
"I saw 71, and I was like, ‘Wow, coach.' My dad said, ‘You're not pulling any punches?' I thought it was really cool."
During the first part of his spring break, Debell started in Miami. He saw the ‘U' before heading to a camp. From there, he went to Georgia Tech, Georgia and Clemson.
"We got to Clemson, they showed me the whole campus, met a lot of the players. They were really nice. Then I went to South Carolina," DeBell said.
At this point, he claims no favorites.
"I don't have anyone ranked on a scale from one to 10…I'm pretty much open to everything right now," DeBell said.
He'll start working his list down to a few favorites once he's able to visit more schools.
"I'm looking for a good relationship with the coaches, if I get along with them--a program that can take me to the next level and a program that I can help them get to the next level," DeBell said.
