2015 5-star defensive lineman Albert Huggins spent three days at Clemson last week for the Dabo Swinney High School Football Camp and came away impressed.
“I enjoyed myself a lot. They treat you well at Clemson. I learned a lot of stuff from the coaches. I got to work with some guys that had been in the NFL and they gave me some good advice,” said Huggins.
The Clemson staff spent a lot of time working with the star defensive lineman at camp.
“They told me they really enjoyed having me at camp. I learned a lot of things that I can take back and help my team with,” said Huggins.
Another visit is already scheduled for July and another may be on tap next weekend.
“I am going to Florida on the 26th of July. I am thinking about going to South Carolina next weekend, but I am not sure yet,” said Huggins.
When asked about his current leaders, Huggins responded, “I don’t have any right now. I have an open mind about everything. I am just trying to enjoy myself and visit as many schools as possible”.
What will be the most important factors when the prize recruit decides on his college destination?
“First I will look at education. They can’t take your education away from you. Education will be the main thing when I pick my school. Education is my main priority right now in high school. The average NFL player only plays three years. You need to have your education to fall back on. Second I will look for a great environment where I feel comfortable with the people surrounding me,” replied Huggins.
A conversation with coach Swinney during the visit to camp may have changed the timing for Albert’s commitment.
“When I went to Clemson I got to talk with coach Swinney. One thing stuck out to me. He said there is no reason to wait it out. He said when you know where you will go you should go ahead and commit and help recruit other people to that school. I was going to wait it out. Now I am just going to wait until I am 100 percent sure,” said Huggins.
