The Final Push for 5-star Anthony

By

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney along with coach Steele and coach Brooks visited the home of 5-star linebacker Stephone Anthony on Thursday night to try to close the deal.

“The visit went real good.  The coaches were here for a couple of hours.  It was a different kind of visit.  We didn’t really talk much about football.  We talked about everything else.  It was a good visit,” said Anthony.

What did the Clemson staff tell Stephone?

“Coach Steele and Dabo told me how bad they want me at Clemson,” said Anthony.

 The coaches made another strong impression on Anthony’s parents.

“Both my mom and dad really enjoyed the visit.  They were impressed with coach Swinney,” said Anthony.

Is the top linebacker still planning to take the official visit to North Carolina this weekend?

“I am going to my basketball game tonight.  Then I am still planning to go to UNC for my official visit,” replied Anthony.

After returning from Chapel Hill the Shrine Bowl standout plans to make a quick decision.

“I am going to try to make my decision when I get back Sunday or on Monday,” said Anthony.

The Under Armour All-American has been sick the past few days.

“I am feeling a little better.  I have some medicine now,” said Anthony.
