DL Albert Huggins of Orangeburg-Wilkinson is the state’s top uncommitted senior prospect. He has slow played recruiting all year, but with plans on graduating early and enrolling in college in January, the recruiting pace is quickening for him. Two weekends ago he made an official visit to Georgia. This weekend he will do the same at Clemson. He’s also thinking ab
out taking officials to Florida and North Carolina.
Huggins is no stranger to Clemson. He’s been there for camps and games and knows the coaching staff well. So there’s not much new the Tigers can show in this weekend. He just wants to take it all in and enjoy the rivalry weekend.
“I’ve already seen the coaches, the fans and how they act like a family,” Huggins said. “I just want to see it better. I want to see more of it. That’s why I’m going up there. I know how coach Hobby is and how the defensive lineman are, I just want to go there and see them ball out.”
Georgia was Huggins first official visit. He was there for the Auburn game which presented a great atmosphere for the Georgia staff to show off. And Huggins was impressed by what he saw.
“It was great, I enjoyed myself,” he said. “It’s much like Clemson to me. It was a good atmosphere on the field. I got to see a good game. The coaching staff was laid back and we had a good time. I got to go out with one of my hosts and that was fun. Its more than just football in Athens.”
Huggins said his parents will join him on his Clemson visit. And he’s still open regarding his decision.
“I’m still thinking,” he said. “I’m trying to take these official visits and see how the schools really are. Just trying to take it all in and hopefully I can make a decision, pray on it this week.”
Huggins said he doesn’t have a date in mind on a decision but he knows he has to make one in the next few weeks because he graduates in December. He will play in the Shrine Bowl and said the decision could come after that game.
Huggins said he’s still in touch with Florida and North Carolina but it appears Clemson and Georgia are the top two at this point.
“I didn’t say it,” Huggins laughed. “I plead the fifth.” But he confirmed it was safe to assuming the Tigers and Dogs lead.
