The Guillermo Diaries - Official Visit


By Jay Guillermo.

Clemson verbal commitment Jay Guillermo, one of the leaders of the 2012 class, is doing a diary with  In this edition the All-American discusses his official visit last weekend to Clemson.

The official visit was a lot of fun.  I really got to talk with Chad Kelly a lot more.  I hadn’t seen him much one on one.  It was good to be able to bond with the quarterback.  It was also good getting to see all my boys like Patrick, Oliver and Bradley.  I also got to talk a lot with Keith Marshall, Todd Gurley and Jonathan Bullard.

The highlight of the visit was going to Calhoun corners for dinner.  We all had dinner there as a family and as a Clemson family.  That was awesome.  I got to eat with coach Caldwell and coach Brooks.  We talked about everything.  It was great.
