Coach Dabo Swinney raving about Barbatella on National Signing Day 2019

On National signing day Clemson University Football Coach Dabo Swinney had to say a lot of things coming out of a successful 2018 season with the win of the national championship. Not only was he excited about the past accomplishments of last year’s team or the new new students joining the program, but he also raved about a local Italian restaurant in Naples named Barbatella. During the recruitment process of new Running Back Chez Mellusi from Naples High School, he joined the young player and his father Mario Mellusi (who is the general manager of Barbatella) for dinner. The Clemson Tigers coach was so pleased about his dining experience that he called his visit to Naples as “one of my all time favorite recruitment visits”.
