5-star defensive lineman Albert (Bert) Huggins is having an outstanding junior season for Orangeburg-Wilkinson.
“We had a bye week so we didn’t play this week. My season is going well. I know I have five sacks, around 15 or 16 tackles and two forced fumbles,” said Huggins.
Bert continues to wait for his father to rehab before making some unofficial visits.
“I didn’t go anywhere this weekend. I am still waiting for my dad to get better. He is doing pretty good. He just isn’t able to sit down for a long time yet,” said Huggins.
The prize recruit had planned to see the opener for Clemson, but couldn’t make the trip. He plans to make it to the Valley later this season.
“I was going to go to the Clemson game with Georgia. My mom said we could go and my dad could just stay home, but I said we could wait. I will get to a game there later this year, maybe Florida State,” said Huggins.
Bert would like to check out a few other schools this season.
“I want to go see a game at Alabama or Georgia. I also may try to make it down to Florida,” said Huggins.
The mailbox is full every day for the future All-American.
“I get 15 or 20 pieces of mail every day. I read them all. I still have a whole stack that I haven’t read yet,” said Huggins.
Although Bert gets lots of mail a few letters recently stood out from the rest.
“Clemson sent my dad some get well letters. They came from coach Scott,” said Huggins.
When will the Palmetto standout narrow the field?
“I can’t really tell you. It will probably be at the end of my season. I will try to pick a top three or four,” replied Huggins.
What will be important when Bert picks his college destination?
“First it will be education. Then I will look at location and the atmosphere. I will also look at the coaching,” said Huggins.
