Clemson Football: 5-star Bryan Bresee is unlike any other defensive lineman

5-star Clemson football signee Bryan Bresee is going to bring a level of dominance in a way we haven’t seen in quite some time.

Bryan Bresee officially signed his National Letter of Intent to play for the Clemson football program Wednesday during the Early National Signing Period.

Bresee, a 5-star DL, is a versatile prospect who has shown traits unlike anything we’ve seen in quite some time at that collegiate level.

The Clemson football program has seen talented defensive tackles come through over the past few years, including guys like Christian Wilkins, Grady Jarrett, Carlos Watkins and Dexter Lawrence.

Bresee is different from those players, though.

It’s not to say that he’s necessarily more talented, but the traits that Bresee possesses are unlike anything we’ve seen. He’s huge, but athletic. Similar to Christian Wilkins in some ways, Bresee could line up on the outside at defensive end and use his explosiveness and athleticism to blow past offensive tackles or he can line up inside and dominate interior linemen with his strength.

Bresee hasn’t just proven this in high school film, he has done it extensively in combines that feature the top prospects in the nation. He has gone up against the best offensive linemen and has come away victorious almost every time.

When you watch the film, Bresee is similar to J.J. Watt. He has that raw athleticism and motor to be a force no matter where he lines up on the defensive line. He’s not your typical ‘monster up the middle’ or your typical ‘explosive pass-rusher.’

In many ways, he’s both.

Next: Tigers won't ever win a Heisman. And it's okay.

Bresee isn’t going to come to Clemson and redshirt. He won’t just play sparingly as a reserve either. He’s going to be a force and a legitimate contender for playing time from day one and nothing’s going to stop him from finding his way on the field early and often.
