QB DJ Uiagalelei of Bellflower, CA, considered the top prospect in the 2020 class by some analysts, made his much-anticipated return visit to Clemson last week. He and his family arrived on Wednesday and left on Sunday. “Everything went great. I don’t think it could have gone any better,” Uiagalelei said. “I’ve been to Clemson and I know how I feel, but I wanted my family to come out and see everything and see what they thought about it. Everybody had a good time.”
Uiagalelei was able to watch spring practice and the game on Saturday. The visit also gave his mother her first look at the school.
“There isn’t anything Clemson could have done different,” he said. “They did everything right. But I knew coming out here that this visit was just to let my whole family see Clemson, check out the campus, and get a feel for what it would be like if I was here. We did that. My family loved it.”
Uiagalelei also spent a lot of time with some of the other top Clemson targets who were in for the spring game.
“I was spending time with RJ Mickens, and then he committed,” Uiagalelei said. “I got to talk to Bryan Bresee and a lot of other guys. We know each other through things like Snapchat and things like that, so it was good to spend time with them and talk to them. But we had a photo shoot with all of the committed offensive linemen, except for Paul (Tchio), who wasn’t there. I took a picture in the middle of those guys.”
Uiagalelei will visit Oregon April 20th for its spring game and is planning a decision between the Tigers and the Ducks within two months.
