Josh Brown’s visit to Clemson this weekend is a trip he will never forget. Before the game even started Josh got some good news from Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney.
“It happened before kickoff. Coach Brooks took me into coach Swinney’s office. We sat down and talked for a bit about my future. He asked what I wanted to major in and how I liked Clemson. I told him Clemson was a great school. He told me he wanted to offer me. I told him thanks. I really appreciated it,” said Brown.
Coach Swinney made the 6-5, 270 pound lineman like he was already a Tiger.
“It felt like I was already coach Swinney’s player. He was talking to me like he knew me already. It took me a while to realize what happened. I never expected it to happen,” said Brown.
A number of schools are showing stronger interest in the Palmetto standout the past few weeks.
“My other offers are Presbyterian, Virginia Military and Georgia State. Some other schools are showing a lot of interest. I hear from Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Marshall and NC State,” said Brown.
Could a commitment be around the corner?
“Right now my main focus is on my team. I will probably wait until after my season. Other schools have interest in me also. Maybe tomorrow I might get an offer from another school,” said Brown.
The Clemson fans made a big impression on the star defensive lineman.
“The game was amazing. As soon as we got there all we saw was orange. The tailgate was beyond crazy. If I close my eyes right now all I would see is orange. The people are so nice. It is like a family up there. It was my first game at Clemson. It was like magic a little bit. The family feel, the tradition,” said Brown.
How did Josh think the Tiger defense did Saturday?
“They did real good. I was watching Brandon Thompson. I watched his moves to see if I could learn some things I can do this season,” said Brown.
