Clemons Feels Comfortable at UVa

Rasool Clemons took a visit to Virginia on Wednesday. The Aiken (S.C.) South Aiken defensive end recaps his visit to Charlottesville and what’s next in his recruitment.

Rasool Clemons took one more step towards making his decision on Wednesday, after he made a trip toVirginia.

“Charlottesville was great,” said the Aiken (S.C.) South Aiken defensive end. “I really enjoyed myself. I felt comfortable when I arrived there.”

Clemons points to his recruiting coordinator, UVa assistant coach Marques Hagans, and to head coach Mike London for making him feel at ease.

“Me and coach Hagans bonded,” he explained. “We were just talking like regular people. We didn’t just talk about football. We talked about school, academics and just life. It was good.”

The 6-foot-6, 213 pound rush end/hybrid described his encounter with London as unique.

“He gave me a big hug like he was my dad,” he laughed “He seems like a good, funny coach, but serious at times too like a father figure. It was different.”

Before this visit, Clemons connected Virginia with Tiki Barber. But now the three-star 2015 prospect knows a lot more about Virginia.

“I learned about Thomas Jefferson-there was this hill he made for graduates. I learned that they are ranked fifth for players that head to the NFL and last longer and are still in the NFL today...and how the academics are in the top three.”

Clemons is unsure of when exactly he will be making his decision, but still claims Tennessee as his leader.

“Right now I am done (with visits). I am focused on the season, the high school season. I will probably come up for some games,” he explained. “Virginia game, I want to go to a Tennessee game and a LSU game-that’s about it.”

But when he does make a decision, he knows what he wants.

“I want to go to a school that I can see myself at; a school that I can call home; a school that I can graduate from.” Recommended Stories
