He spoke with several Clemson coaches and staff members.
"They're a bunch of cool guys…they're a bunch of fun guys and cool guys," Bone said.
Though Clemson is the first visit he's taken in a while, Bone hopes to hit the road in the coming weeks and months.
"I'm trying to visit all the schools around here," he said. "I want to go to Georgia, Carolina, Clemson, Mississippi, North Carolina, places like that. I'm going to try to start making my way further out."

"Probably, in my senior season," Bone said. "I'm only a junior right now, so I've still got a whole other year to think about that."
As a junior, Bone caught 65 passes for 1,150 yards and 15 touchdowns.
