Auburn legacy QB discusses Swinney Camp experience

The headlining quarterback on Clemson’s campus for the second session of the Dabo Swinney Camp this week was Pinson (Ala.) Pinson Valley’s Bo Nix.

Nix, a touted prospect in the 2019 class, competed at the camp on Wednesday.

“It was really good,” Nix told The Clemson Insider. “I got to come and see everything again, and hang out with the coaches and see coach Swinney again. I got to really grow my relationship with coach (Brandon) Streeter and talk with him some more. So, overall it was really good.”

Nix (6-2, 190) previously visited Clemson in March, when he picked up Clemson’s only offer to a 2019 quarterback to date.

Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Tennessee are among the other schools that have offered Nix, who feels good about his performance at Clemson and said he received positive feedback from position coach Brandon Streeter.

“I thought I did pretty well,” Nix said. “I threw the ball pretty well. I was sharp with my feet. He told me I had a good day, and he thinks I have good things going for me.”

Nix had an opportunity to speak briefly with Swinney while out on the practice fields.

“I got to say hi to him real quick,” Nix said. “He was obviously really busy with everything going on. We couldn’t stay long enough to necessarily visit with him in his office or anything like that, but I got to holler at him and we got to talk for just a little bit.”

Nix is enjoying the recruiting process and taking his time with it. He doesn’t currently claim any favorites, but said Clemson is “definitely” high on his list.

“I like how they focus a lot of things on your family and everybody has a good relationship when you go to Clemson,” he said. “Coach Swinney does a good job of knowing everybody and having a good relationship with you and your family. He makes Clemson a fun place to be.”

Nix traveled to Clemson with his father, former Auburn quarterback Patrick Nix, who is also his high school coach.

Clemson has made a good impression on his dad, too.

“He likes what they’re doing. He likes the coaches, he likes what they do on offense, he likes the campus, he likes the family mentality of the whole place. So, he definitely enjoys being around Clemson and likes it a lot.”

Nix, the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in his class according to 247Sports, has also camped at Auburn this summer. He might go to Florida State for its camp in late July, as well.
