OT Patrick Destefano Profile
CUTigers caught up with Dorman (Roebuck) High School offensive tackle Patrick Destefano after Clemson beat North Texas 35- 10.
Saturday's game was the first one he'd gone to as a recruit at Clemson. Destefano had been to games in the past because one of his sisters used to go to Clemson.
The trip Saturday received high grades.
"Every time I go to Clemson I just have more and more fun," Destefano said. "It's a really great place with amazing facilities. The coaches are great.
"As far as the game atmosphere, 83,000 fans in Clemson, running down the hill, the Tiger walk—it's great. It really was," Destefano said.
He spent time with recruiting coordinator/wide receivers coach Jeff Scott and offensive guards and centers coach Brad Scott before the game. The Scotts watched Destefano play on Friday night.
"We were able to catch up and talk about how my game went and the game plan for what they were going to do against North Texas," Destefano said. "It was a great experience."
Other plans for this fall include a trip to Columbia for next weekend's South Carolina/Georgia game as well as a trip to Durham, N.C. for a Duke game. Destefano would like to visit Penn State for a game, too.
"I want to come back to at least two more Clemson games," he said.
Clemson, South Carolina and Duke have all offered. Destefano said Northwestern is close to offering.
There are no favorites at this point.
"Clemson is definitely up there in the pack, but I can't say for sure. It's just hazy. Thank God I have two more years of recruiting, because if I had to go now, it would be tough," Destefano said.
