North Carolina guard likes Clemson's culture


Jacksonville (N.C.) Northside 2018 offensive guard Maurice McIntyre made the trip to Clemson on Saturday for the Tigers’ 59-0 win over South Carolina State.

McIntyre enjoyed the visit, especially the postgame experience, and said Clemson did a good job of hosting the prospects in attendance.

“I loved how I got to go on the sideline and watch them (warm up),” McIntyre said. “That was pretty neat. I liked how they fed us. I enjoyed the game.

“After the game, all the prospects were invited to the locker room. I thought that was pretty neat. We got to see the postgame celebration, which was pretty nice and cool.”

What did McIntyre think of Clemson’s performance on the field?

“I thought they performed well,” he said. “They looked like they were executing. I saw a lot of people go in, too, so it was good to see they were rotating a lot of guys, seeing what they can do.”

McIntyre left impressed with the culture of Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney’s program.

“Their coach, I really like how he is family oriented and how he brings God into the program,” McIntyre said. “I really like that. Not a lot of schools do that.”

McIntyre currently has an offer from Duke. The 6-foot-3, 282-pounder is garnering interest from several other schools, as well.

“UNC, VCU, N.C. State, South Carolina, Virginia Tech and Boston College,” McIntyre said.

Along with Clemson, McIntyre has recently visited North Carolina, Duke, South Carolina and N.C. State. Next up for him is a game at either Duke or N.C. State.
