Oliver Jones, offensive tackle from Ninety Six, S.C., didn't play a single snap during his junior…
Big time OT visits Tigertown again
The Ninety Six High School junior offensive tackle visited Tigertown to watch practice on Wednesday.
"I was making rounds. I'd already been to some other schools. Went to North Carolina this past Saturday and went to Georgia on Tuesday," Jones told CUTigers.com earlier this week.
The last time the Scout.com three-star watched a Clemson practice was before the bowl game in December. He's impressed with the pace of play that Chad Morris has brought to Clemson from Tulsa.
"The new offense, just the speed, is the first thing that sticks out to you," Jones said. "How fast they break out the huddle and how fast they go from play to play. During a 10-minute stretch, I think I saw them get about 30 plays in, which is ridiculous. That's fast pace moving."
Wednesday was also the first-time Jones saw new offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell during practice.
"He's a genuine guy. He's the same kind of guy off the field as he is on the field," Jones said. "Well, he's more aggressive on the field. He's not the kind of guy that's going to cuss you out all practice. He's not a push over either. He's going to get done what he wants to get done."
Jones also visited South Carolina to watch the Gamecocks practice. It's possible that he will visit Alabama this spring.
Former Clemson coach Burton Burns, the Crimson Tide running backs coach, recruited South Carolina. Now, former Clemson defensive ends coach Chris Rumph is manning the state. Former Clemson offensive coordinator Billy Napier, who is on the quality control staff at Alabama, served as Jones' primary recruiter while he was at Clemson. Defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison now recruits Jones' area.
"No [order], it's just Clemson, Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, East Carolina."
