Greenlee spent time with the three prospects while they were in Clemson this weekend for their official visits.

"After hanging out with them, I think there's a good chance," Greenlee told CUTigers on Sunday. "Carl, he got there late, but he wasn't quiet. He was just like, ‘Yo, what's up?' And I didn't really know him. Montravius, you could tell he was having fun, but he's just one of those quiet guys…that's a real cool dude. Wiggins, he was cool.

"I don't see why they wouldn't come to Clemson."

For Greenlee, the official visit experience was a good one.

"It was good. I got to see some of my future teammates, got to hang out with them, get to know them better," he said.

But it was the speech from Brian Dawkins at the awards banquet that stood out to the three-star outside linebacker prospect.

"He was just talking about how you've got to be dedicated, doing things, doing something that's positive, but not thinking that you're doing just to do it, to be seen," Greenlee said. "He got that new award named after him. He basically got the award and told us you've got to work hard, stay focused and be smart."

Hosted this weekend by former Daniel High School teammate DeShawn Williams, Greenlee isn't sure if he'll join Williams over on the defensive side of the ball.

Dabo Swinney told Greenlee that he could play outside linebacker or 3-back, the Tigers' tight end position.

"I like catching the ball, but I've played defense so long, I'm not used to it. I just want to play and be out there," Greenlee said.

As a senior, Greenlee had 70 tackles, four sacks, three fumble recoveries and a pick-6.
