2014 DT talks Tigers, plans visit
\ Quaven Ferguson is one of a handful of FBS prospects to emerge at Easley High School the last couple of years. While the Green Wave continue their march to an undefeated record, Ferguson continues to play well.
The standout defensive tackle also visited Clemson this past weekend as well. CUTigers caught up with him after his trip to get the latest.
What were your overall thoughts on your visit to Clemson Saturday?
Ferguson: I had a lot of fun. I got to sit with my teammates. We left early in the third quarter because it was kind of a blowout, so I didn't get to talk to any coaches. I can definitely see myself playing on that field. I grew up coming to Clemson games, so I know what to expect in Death Valley.
I know it's still early in the process, but what teams are you hearing from right now?
Ferguson: Georgia Tech, Clemson, and Virginia Tech.
Are there any other teams you'd like to hear from?
Ferguson: Probably Florida State and UNC.
Where else do you plan visiting this fall?
Ferguson: I plan on coming next Saturday back to Clemson for the Furman game. I have a visit scheduled for Georgia Tech in the next three weeks. I haven't set up anything with Virginia Tech yet.
What do you like about Clemson?
Ferguson: I really like the coaching staff and the entire atmosphere.
Being from Easley, how much is location going to play a factor?
Ferguson: It will be play a factor. I don't want a really big city.
Do you have a top three right now? In order?
Ferguson: In order, Georgia Tech, Clemson, South Carolina.
