Jared Shanker with ESPN writes that 13 Clemson recruits for the 2015 recruiting class signed financial aid agreements with the school, which allows the Tigers’ to have unlimited contact with them.
The financial-aid agreements do not bind the player to the school, but the school is locked into the player unless he is no longer eligible for midyear enrollment. For the recruits, it guarantees their scholarship in Clemson’s 2015 class.
Also over at ESPN’s ACC Blog Andrea Adelson wraps up the countdown of the ACC’s top 25 players. Coming in at No. 2 is Clemson DE Vic Beasley, right behind Jameis Winston.
Beasley is not that much bigger than a year ago, but he has worked on dropping back into coverage along with fine-tuning his pass-rushing skills to be even better this season. Clemson expects him to be, especially since the Tigers will be relying on Beasley and the defense to set the tone.
Clemson football kicked off Fall training camp yesterday and David Hood at Tigernet has a few observations, including some interesting tidbits on Deshaun Watson’s first day.
This is obviously the first time we’ve seen Deshaun Watson in action since he injured his collarbone, and he looked way better than I thought he would. You can tell he has added muscle, but his size wasn’t what stood out – he was accurate on almost all of his throws, and one observer told me after one bullet pass and said “freak show.”
Come back to Rubbing the Rock for plenty of coverage as training camp rolls on and football season draws ever closer.
