The freshman can play.
That was the opinion of both Dabo Swinney and Chad Morris after first-semester freshman tight end Jordan Leggett made his Clemson debut on Saturday by catching seven passes for 97 yards, including the game-winning touchdown, in the Tigers' Orange-White spring game at Death Valley.
Swinney said Leggett is “just as cool as a cucumber.”
“Nothing fazes him," said Swinney. "He just gets it. He’s one of those guys that has great instincts, picks things up very well. I don’t have any doubt that he’ll be a factor for us."
"The kid's going to be special - he really is," said Morris. "He's just got to get more physical to complete his game."
The 6-foot-6, 235-pound Leggett's performance earned a "shout-out" from former Tiger star and Indianapolis Colts' tight end Dwayne Allen, who tweeted "records are meant to be broken and this guy is going to shatter them all!!"
