Hope Mills (N.C.) South View tight end Jonathan Hannah took his first official visit this past weekend to Clemson. How did things go?
"I had a good time there," said the 6-foot-4, 251-pounder. "An official visit lets you see a lot more. I got to spend more time with the coaches and go out with the players and get to know them better than just introducing myself in a different situation. I was hosted by Charles Bennett and everyone was cool."
Hannah, the No. 6 tight end in the country, enjoyed the game.
"It was a great game, what a comeback," he said. "I didn't think they'd be able to come back and win, it showed me a lot."
Hannah is being recruited as a defensive end by Clemson.
"They're the only school recruiting me just for that position," he said. "Virginia Tech said I could be a tight end or defensive end and everyone else wants me as a tight end. I don't have a preference."
The playing time situation looked good at Clemson.
"They said I'd have to play right away," he said. "They need defensive ends big-time. Coach West told me I'd have to come in as a true freshman and help. That's important because I'd like to play early."
Did Clemson move up on his list at all?
"They are as high as they were before, I was always high on them," he said. "I still have my same seven teams -- Clemson, Virginia Tech, Georgia, North Carolina, NC State, Oklahoma and Penn State."
Next up for Hannah is a visit to Blacksburg to see the Hokies on Sept. 24.
"I'm looking forward to it and to a weekend off," he said. "This weekend I'll probably just sit around and watch as many games on TV as I can."
