OLB Kris Frost Profile
Butler High School (Matthews) outside linebacker Kris Frost visited Clemson for the first time on Saturday. After making the trip south on I-85, Frost told CUTigers what he thought about the trip.
"Clemson is a college that I've really wanted to go to for a while now. I'm glad I finally got a chance to. I had a great time with my mom," he said.
"We got to see them giving back to the community as they did with (the ladies clinic). We couldn't go up there at a more perfect time. It was good to see them giving back and showing that they care about more stuff than football."
Frost gave rave reviews on the staff and facilities.
"The stadium is amazing. We got to see the stadium and facilities. They're all great. It's pretty much the best of the best," he said. "A lot of people say the SEC is the best, but I feel like Clemson is just as good a college in the country, when it comes to facilities and staff—all of that."
What he's heard all along from his top recruiter, offensive tackles/tight ends coach Danny Pearman, was true.
"It's a great place. The atmosphere is great. It seems like a very good college town. That's what they've been saying since day one and I finally got a chance to go down there," Frost said.
He's already made plans for a return trip this fall. Frost said he's scheduled to be in town for the Miami game. It will be an unofficial visit, though.
"I really plan on going to official visits that are really further away, like Cal, USC and LSU," he said. "The ones that are close, I'm going to keep it to unofficial visits. Like Clemson, Chapel Hill, Auburn—ones that I can drive to."
Though he didn't share an order of favorites, Frost did name schools that are on his list.
"Chapel Hill, Clemson, of course, West Virginia, Michigan, Auburn, LSU, Cal and USC," he said.
Frost hopes to have a "solid three" midway through the upcoming football season.
Scout.com rates Frost with three stars and the No. 22 outside linebacker prospect in the class of 2011.
