4-star safety on Clemson: ‘I felt like I was home’


4-star safety on Clemson: ‘I felt like I was home’

Four-star safety Quindarious Monday visited Clemson for the first time during the Dabo Swinney Camp last week and left very impressed.

The Atlanta (Ga.) Carver standout spent last Wednesday on Clemson’s campus with his mother, father, sister and niece.

“I loved it,” Monday told The Clemson Insider. “It was beautiful down there. All the coaches, they interacted with me in a good way. I felt like I was home.”

Clemson was a hit with Monday’s family, as well.

“My mom, my dad and my sister, they loved it,” Monday said. “They said it looks like a place they can see me.”

Monday, who received an offer from Clemson in early June, watched the morning camp session before competing in the afternoon workout.

Clemson co-defensive back coaches Mickey Conn and Mike Reed were pleasantly surprised by Monday’s showing.

“They like how I move,” he said. “They knew I could cover, but they didn’t know I could cover that good.”

After touring the facilities with his family following the workout, Monday met with Dabo Swinney.

“He said that I have a great chance to come in and start, I just have to come in and work,” Monday said. “Nothing is going to be easy.”

Monday (6-3, 175) received his first offer from Auburn in January 2016, and Florida State followed that May. Offers have rolled in this year, with Clemson, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee chief among them.

Monday isn’t currently claiming any favorites, but said he could start narrowing things down toward the middle of his senior season.

After visiting Clemson, Monday went to Florida State on Thursday. Clemson might not have to wait long to get him back on campus, as he said he plans to return for Dabo Swinney’s annual All In Cookout next month.
