Matayo Uiagalelei, the younger brother of Clemson starting quarteback DJ Uiagalelei, was on campus last weekend working out for the Tigers’ coaching staff.
While the trip reportedly went as well as can be expected, according to their father “Big Dave,” so did the next trip the younger Uiagalelei took to Alabama.
“I’m not going to lie, and I’m just being honest, after my meeting with Nick Saban, I can honestly see Matayo suiting up for Alabama,” Big Dave tweeted. “It’s something about a father recognizing and respecting another fathers hard work and love for their kids. Nick Saban gets it, some coaches don’t.”
The 6-foot-5, 255 pound Uiagalelei is one of the Top-50 players overall in the 2023 class and ranks No. 3 among all edge rushers and No. 3 in the state of California.
During his workout in Clemson last weekend, Uiagalelei spent the morning working out at end and the afternoon with the receivers and was quite impressive in both aspects.
