The Clemson football coaching staff is expecting big things out of sophomore running back C.J. Davidson.
The Tigers' third-team running back is now a scholarship player.
Dabo Swinney announced Tuesday that the former Daniel High dual-sport star is one of three walk-ons being awarded scholarships for the upcoming season.
Davidson, who arrived at Clemson on a track scholarship as a long jumper and triple jumper, dropped off the track team last fall in order to walk-on in football. He impressed the coaches throughout spring practice, and then moved up the depth chart to the No. 3 position behind Rod McDowell and Zac Brooks.
Also awarded scholarships for the 2013-14 academic year were safety Taylor Watson and long-snapper Michael Sobeski.
Watson, a redshirt junior from Woodmont High in Simpsonville, S.C., is the son of former Tiger player Ronald Watson.
Sobeski, from Dorman High in Spartanburg, S.C., is the Tigers starting long-snapper for place-kicks. He was also awarded a scholarship last year.
Jordan Leggett may be available: Sidelined for the past three weeks with an MCL injury, Jordan Leggett didn't make the Clemson depth chart that was released on Monday. But that doesn't mean he won't play Saturday against Georgia.
Swinney said Tuesday that there's a good chance the first-year freshman tight end will be available, and will play. Leggett was challenging for the Tigers' starting tight end spot when he was injured.
"I have a strong sense he'll be available," Swinney said.
Meanwhile, Sam Cooper remains on the fast-track in his rehab from ACL surgery, as well. He spent time this week working with the scout team.
Grad student Darrell Smith and redshirt sophomore Stanton Seckinger are currently listed 1-2 on the depth chart at tight end.
