A local lineman that grew up a fan of Clemson will make another unofficial visit to his childhood favorite school on Saturday.
Honea Path (S.C.) Belton-Honea Path 2019 defensive tackle Tysheik Galloway is slated to make the short-distance trip for Clemson’s season opener against Kent State.
“I am very excited about going to see the Tigers play,” Galloway told The Clemson Insider.
Galloway previously visited Clemson in June for the Dabo Swinney Camp and performed well. He also attended the Tigers’ spring game in April as well as their game against Pittsburgh last November.
The 6-foot-2, 280-pounder is looking forward to furthering his rapport with defensive line coach Todd Bates.
“I hope to leave there with a stronger relationship with coach Bates,” he said.
Galloway is also garnering attention from South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia State and UNC Charlotte.
“I would say out of those it’s probably South Carolina showing as much interest as Clemson is showing,” he said.
Galloway hopes to visit the aforementioned schools this season, as well.
Clemson has made a profoundly positive impression on Galloway through his first three visits there heading into tomorrow’s.
What stands out to him the most?
“The great family atmosphere, the way everyone treats everyone like family,” he said.
As a sophomore last season, Galloway was an honorable mention All-Area player after recording 39 tackles, three sacks and two pass breakups.
