D.C. prospect: ‘I love how things go down in Clemson’

Washington (D.C.) Archbishop Carroll offensive tackle Anton Harrison visited Clemson a week ago for the second time in three months.

Harrison — a rising sophomore with several early Power Five conference offers — participated in the second session of the Dabo Swinney Camp last week.

He previously visited for Clemson’s spring game in April.

“I really enjoyed being at Clemson, going on the tour, meeting the coaching staff and being in a great atmosphere,” Harrison told TCI. “Competing in the camp was a great experience, learning things I didn’t know, helping me on things and great work with other players.”

Harrison (6-5, 270) picked up offers from Maryland and Wake Forest during camp visits earlier this month. Pittsburgh also offered this month, joining Kentucky and Syracuse among others on his offer sheet.

Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell had good things to say about Harrison’s showing at the Swinney Camp.

“He told me he liked what he saw and was surprised that I am only (in the class of) 2020,” Harrison said. “He liked how I moved my feet and how fast I moved.”

Along with Clemson, Harrison is receiving mail from schools such as Florida State and North Carolina. He has camped at South Carolina, Virginia and Virginia Tech along with Maryland and Wake Forest.

Harrison said Clemson’s family environment stood out to him.

“The atmosphere and the people there, it’s just like one big family,” he said. “I love how things go down in Clemson.”

After last season, Harrison was named a freshman All-American by MaxPreps.
