Oliver Jones, one of the top offensive lineman in the Southeast, was back on campus at Clemson on Saturday for the UNC basketball game.  The prize recruit got to sit right behind the Clemson bench with head coach Dabo Swinney.

“It was great.  I really enjoyed the visit.  It was a great game.  It was cool sitting on the front row behind the bench,” said Jones.

The Ninety-six standout is getting to know Dorman’s Patrick Destefano very well after so many visits.

“We are getting along great.  He is my boy,” said Jones.

What did the coaches tell Oliver during the visit?

“We didn’t talk too much football.  It was more of a regular day talking.  It was just a relaxing day,” replied Jones.

His father made the visit with him on Saturday.

“My dad came with me.  He had a good time,” said Jones.

Which other recruits did he get a chance to speak with during the visit?

“I talked to Bradley.  I had a chance to talk with him and his mom,” replied Jones.

The visit tour will include a couple of SEC stops over the next few weeks.

“I am going to Carolina this weekend.  Then I am going to visit Georgia,” said Jones.

Oliver will be back at Clemson once spring practice gets underway.

“I will get back to Clemson this spring for practice or the game,” said Jones.

How is his rehab going?

“It is going good.  I should be getting off these crutches on Thursday.  I only had one crutch on Saturday,” said Jones.
