Uiagalelei be the next star to develop under Dabo Swinney?According to Clemson247, Uiagalelei is planning an extended visit to the Clemson campus. Per the report, he will be joined by his family and friends on a four-day unofficial visit.Uiagalelei has observed the team in several games over the past year, but this trip will reportedly be the first time his mother visits the campus. It features this weekend’s Clemson spring game.From The State:“I’m excited to bring my whole family out so we can really sit down and see everything there – look at the town, look at all of the facilities. We’ll be there for four or five days. We get in on Wednesday, and we leave Sunday,” Uiagalelei said. ““She just wants to see the campus and the football stadium. She was to meet all of the coaches. She wants to do all of the stuff besides football – check out the dorms, the town, where’s the nearest Walmart, where am I going to go to church. And, she wants to eat fried green tomatoes, that’s what she really wants to do. She’s looking forward to that.”247Sports rates Uiagalelei as the No. 1 pro-style quarterback in the country, and the No. 6 overall prospect. He is currently tipped to go to Clemson at 72-percent per 247Sports’ Crystal Ball Predictions.The Tigers are not without competition for the St. John Bosco quarterback though. Uiagalelei is planning an official visit to Oregon this Spring, and could make his commitment before the start of next season.Clemson already boasts a top-five recruiting class in the country per 247Sports. However, the program currently trails ACC rival Miami, who have 12 commitments versus Clemson’s nine.The Tigers’ 2019 class didn’t have a five-star commitment but was still ranked in the top ten. Securing Uiagalelei could push 2020’s class over the top.[The State]
