Elite DE visits Clemson
Eagles Landing Christian Academy rising junior Isaac Rochell camped in Tigertown with 2013 teammate Keyante Green.
"It was fun. I really liked the campus. Out of the ACC schools that I've seen, I think it's the nicest," Rochell told CUTigers.com on Wednesday.
The campus and facilities at Clemson proved to be a plus during the visit.
"As far as where everything is on the campus, if you play football, everything is close and in one spot," Rochell said. "You don't have to go a really long way to go to different things. Everything is in a central location."
Though he was offered as a defensive end by Clemson last month, Rochell is likely to be listed as an offensive tackle by Scout.com. The 6-foot-4, 237-pound jumbo athlete worked with defensive ends coach Marion Hobby on Wednesday.
"I loved working with coach Hobby, because he knows what he's talking about," Rochell said. "He's not one of those coaches—he teaches you—where as a lot of coaches just yell at you. He'll actually teach you and make sure that you know what you're doing."
Later this summer, he will camp at Tennessee and Virginia Tech. Georgia, Georgia Tech and Alabama have already hosted Rochell for camps this summer.
As a sophomore, he recorded 75 tackles, 12 sacks, three forced fumbles and had one interception.
