South Pointe All Americans Visit Clemson
Four-star standout Stephon Gilmore visited Clemson on Saturday along with his teammate and current Clemson verbal commitment Devonte Holloman.
"It was a good visit," stated Gilmore after leaving campus. "We watched practice. We got to see how we will fit in if we come to Clemson."
The Clemson coaches made sure to take time to talk with the two South Pointe standouts during the visit.
"I talked to coach Napier and coach Bowden a lot. They were just talking about how after next year we can come in and fit right in at Clemson," said Gilmore.
While Devonte remains committed to Clemson, the battle for the Stephon will continue until after the first of the year.
"Nothing has really changed," he said. "It is still the same four teams [Clemson, South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama]. I am still going to wait until the Under-Armour game to announce my decision.
What was the highlight of the visit for the four-star prospect?
"I was just impressed with their defense overall. I could definitely see myself playing with that defense," replied Gilmore.
Five-star safety Devonte Holloman also drove down with Gilmore.
"It was good. I got to see the players interact with the coaches. I got to see the different kind of schemes up close," said Holloman.
The Clemson defense looked very good to the future defender.
"The defense seemed like the strength of the team. Ricky Sapp, [Crezdon] Butler and [Mike] Hamlin all looked real good out there today," said Holloman.
One offensive player stood out to the nation's No. 2 safety.
"Jamie Harper is a load. He is hard to tackle. He can really move even with his size," said Holloman.
Gilmore projects as a cornerback at Clemson while Holloman could play either outside linebacker or strong safety.
Both players are expecting to enroll in college in January.
