DT Grady Jarrett Profile
And sure enough, he did.
CUTigers learned that Jarrett planned to commit to Clemson less than a day after he visited for a one-day camp visit.
"The coaches, players, atmosphere—everything, everything about it I like it," he said.
It was the meeting with Swinney before he left campus that had staying power.
"When I talked to coach Dabo in the office yesterday, that's really what sealed the deal with me," Jarrett said. "That's where he offered me."
Jarrett and Swinney had briefly met only once before Wednesday's camp.
"It was nothing really where it was just me and him," Jarrett said.
Between the morning and afternoon sessions, he checked out the Clemson defense working out in the weight room.
It was Jarrett's work during the afternoon one-one drills with the offensive linemen that could have earned him the offer.
"I did real good on the one-on-ones," he said. "I think that's what really sealed the deal with coach Swinney."
As a sophomore, the only camp Jarrett attended was Clemson's.
His main recruiter from Clemson is defensive ends coach Chris Rumph.
Along with Clemson, Jarrett has offers from Buffalo, Georgia State, Middle Tennessee, Mississippi State and Western Kentucky.
In a Wednesday interview with Scout.com recruiting analyst Chad Simmons, Jarrett said, "They are definitely my number one school. I like everything about Clemson; I like the atmosphere there, I like the fans, I like the coaches, I like the players, and I like how they run their program. There is nothing I don't like about Clemson."
