Four-star linebacker Tre Lamar returned to Clemson for the second time this season when he made the trip up from Roswell, Georgia for the South Carolina game.
“It was a good time. I really enjoyed it,” Lamar said, during a recent interview with TheClemsonInsider.com.
Ranked by 247 as the No. 9 inside linebacker in the class of 2016, Lamar was in Clemson earlier in the season for the S.C. State game. He also made trips to Tigertown for one of the Junior Day events and again to watch one of the team’s preseason practices.
“With the last (Clemson) visit, I went to the South Carolina State game. Even though a lot of people were there, it wasn’t as big of an atmosphere as I wanted to see, so coming for the South Carolina game definitely gave me that, the type of environment they have there when they’re playing a rival like South Carolina,” Lamar said.
Defensive coordinator Brent Venables spoke with the 6-3, 230-pound prospect.
“I talked to coach Venables before and after the game,” Lamar said. “We just talked mostly about how they’ve been doing on defense so far and how they see me fitting in, and just some stuff on why he thinks Clemson is so special, stuff like that.”
Along with his two trip to Clemson this season, Lamar visited South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi State and Georgia Tech for games.
“I think I might for an unofficial visit to Tennessee soon, but I haven’t locked down a date yet, but probably pretty soon,” he said.
Lamar also listed a top-five of Clemson, Alabama, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Tennessee, adding the group is “not in any type of order, that’s just the five.”
“I don’t think I’m coming to a point where I really want to make a decision now, so I think I’m just going to narrow it down bit by bit, but I’m not too close to one,” he said.
