Junior LB Jamie Skalski (6-1 230) of Newnan, GA attended Clemson’s junior day Saturday and now plans to announce a college decision Wednesday between 11:00 AM and 12:00 PM. Skalski said he is deciding between the Tigers, who he has most recently favored, and USC, who he has favored in the past.
“I knew I liked the football at Clemson and the coaches already, I just wanted to see the facilities and what they offered academically,” Skalski said. “I saw everything I needed to see, and I really liked it.”
Skalski also spent quality time with defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Brent Venables and head coach Dabo Swinney.
“Meeting coach Dabo Swinney, that was great,” he said. “He’s an easy guy to like right off the bat. A natural leader, someone I definitely want to play for. I think they like me as much as I like them.”
But Skalski has not yet ruled out USC at this point and talked with linebackers coach Kirk Botkin last week.
“I just like the whole thing,” he said of USC. “Steve Spurrier, it’s a good program.”
Skalski visited USC for the Georgia game last season and he also visited last summer.
Skalski plans to notify his position coach at the winning school Wednesday and will then announce the decision from his school.
