Dunbar High School safety Champ Lewis spent two days in Clemson for camp before heading up to Chapel Hill to see North Carolina. CUTigers caught up with him for his thoughts on the road trip he made with friend and 2011 prospect Chris James.
"It went well," Lewis said. "It was a lot of fun, lots of competition out there. I liked it, it was straight."
Recruited as a safety out of the Florida region, which is covered by offensive guards/centers coach Brad Scott, Lewis could be picking up an offer from Clemson in the future.

South Florida, Kentucky, Iowa State, Vanderbilt and Maryland have already offered.
The 6-2, 175-pound rising senior plans to take some more to see what happens between now and signing day.
"Whatever schools offer me and Chris that we have a chance to play at out freshman year, that would be the school," Lewis said.
Clemson is looking at Lewis as a safety and cornerback. Though he would rather play safety at the next level, playing either position or just corner would suit him fine.
"It doesn't matter. Wherever they put me at, I can play it," Lewis said.
As a junior, he had 57 tackles, eight pass break-ups, and two fumble recoveries between the two positions.
