Junior Rivals250 Watch List member Ricky DeBerry is making sure he visits as many schools as he can and although the Richmond (Va.) St. Christopher's star may have already visited Clemson, he made sure he was back in town to see one of the biggest games of the year as the Tigers took on Georgia.

"The Clemson game was crazy," said the 6-foot-2, 237-pound DeBerry. "It was great. I have not really experienced a game day atmosphere like I experienced at Clemson. I definitely got the full effect of what Clemson is all about. Their passion for the game was great. I really just can't describe in words how great that day was. I loved every bit of it."
DeBerry broke down everything he saw while on the visit.
"We got down there early on Friday and checked into the facilities the next morning," he said. "On the way down to the facilities we saw all the people tailgating with their flat-screen TVs and that great grilling smell. When we toured around the facilities, we saw all the trophies and everything too. In the players' lounge we played pool and some video games. The food was great and we went and saw the Tiger walk.
"Before the game when we were on the sideline people were yelling at us to come to Clemson. The stands looked like a sea of orange. I got a chance to meet and talk to DeAndre Hopkins. We enjoyed the game from our seats.
DeBerry got a chance to speak with defense coordinator Brent Venables, whom he has great respect for. Venable told DeBerry that he "definitely wants to coach me."
He has a special talent for coaching hybrid linebackers like me that can also rush the passer," DeBerry said. "I can definitely see myself playing there."
With more than 40 offers as a junior, DeBerry has plenty to think about when it comes to making cuts and choosing a school, but it sounds like the Tigers put their best paw forward.
"They're up there," said DeBerry. "I'd never been to a game down there, but after seeing a game they're definitely up there on my list. Clemson is a great place to be. My friend's father played at Clemson and he always tells me about it."
