All four major recruiting services rate Roswell, Georgia linebacker Tre Lamar as a four-star prospect.

On Saturday, the 2016 linebacker returned to Clemson for his first visit to Tigertown since March. He spoke with TheClemsonInsider.com on Sunday about the trip.

“It was really good. I enjoyed the visit a lot,” Lamar said.

On this visit to Clemson, Lamar was able to spend a significant amount of 1-on-1 time with head coach Dabo Swinney.

“He talked to me about work ethic and how everyone at Clemson is all in, they’re there to work,” Lamar said. “That’s the kind of people they have. That’s the culture of Clemson.”

The 6-3, 230-pound prospect also enjoyed watching the Tigers’ first practice of the season.

“That was great,” Lamar said. “I got to see coach (Brent) Venables in action. Just seeing the coaches on the field, what kind of players they have now, that was great. I liked it.”

Alabama, Georgia, Wisconsin, Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt hosted Lamar for visits earlier this summer. He won’t hit the road again until the fall.

“I’ll definitely be going back to Clemson for a game,” Lamar said, “And, probably, Alabama and South Carolina.”

Aside from Georgia, all of the aforementioned schools have offered.

“If I had to choose a couple of tops, it would probably be Clemson, Alabama, Mississippi State and Vanderbilt,” Lamar said.

In six games as a sophomore, Lamar had 67 tackles.
