CUTigers spoke with Charlotte Country Day School quarterback Morgan Roberts after he wrapped up the three-hour visit to Clemson on Saturday.

He arrived to Clemson with his parents around 9:30 in the morning and ended the visit around lunchtime. Up first on the docket was a meeting with primary recruiter Danny Pearman, who coaches tight ends and offensive tackles.

"I know him pretty well. We sat down and talked to him. Then my parents and I sat down with coach [Dabo] Swinney for a little while," Roberts said.

"We just talked about the recruiting process, what we think about Clemson and what he thinks about me—the whole deal."

Up next for Roberts was the position meeting with offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Billy Napier. There, Roberts watched and listened to Kyle Parker and Tajh Boyd interact with Napier.

It was the first-time Roberts was able to spend an extensive amount of time with the players at Clemson.

"I watched them do their thing. I had a lot of fun just sitting there and seeing what a normal day is like for them…it seemed like they were having fun in the meeting room, but learning a lot," he said. "[Napier] is really organized. He knows exactly what he's doing, what he wants to go over, how he wants you to read the coverages. I think quarterbacks at Clemson are going to be successful for a long time because he knows how to teach."

Napier will be in Charlotte on Friday for Charlotte Country Day's game versus Charlotte Catholic.

Roberts believes a strong showing could go a long way in helping him pick up an offer from the Tigers.

"There's nothing more important than seeing a quarterback live, seeing how he handles the pressure in a big game," he said. "This is a big rivalry game."
