For the bulk of Clemson's 2014 recruiting class, the adventure has begun.

With early enrollees Deshaun Watson, Demarre Kitt, Artavis Scott, Chris Register and Kyrin Priester on hand to show them the way, the newest set of Tigers arrived at the West End Zone on Sunday and then went through orientation on Monday and Tuesday.

Players posed for coat-and-tie head shots on Tuesday, and then got down to business on Wednesday with the opening day of second-session summer school classes.

Summer classes run through August 4.

Just one player did not enroll because of his academic status - running back Jae'lon Oglesby of Daniel High School. Tiger Illustrated is reporting that Oglesby, a two-time Independent Mail area player of the year, will attend Fork Union Military in the fall.

With scholarship numbers tight, running back C.J. Fuller of Easley, South Carolina joined Daniel linebackers J.D. and Judah Davis and Blythewood, South Carolina linebacker Jalen Williams as grayshirts. They will enroll next January.

All were announced as 2014 signees in February.

The deferred enrollment of Oglesby and Fuller leaves Clemson with just one running back in its freshman class - Adam Choice of Thomasville, Georgia.

The remainder of the freshman class includes offensive linemen Taylor Hearn and Justin Falcinelli, tight ends Milan Richard and Cannon Smith, linebackers Korie Rogers and Richard Yeargin III, wide receiver Trevion Thompson, defensive tackle Jabril Robinson, and defensive back Jefferie Gibson.

What about Kendall Joseph and Alex Spence?

If we only lost one so far I guess that's a plus. At least we know there is a 99.9% chance he will come next year being a Daniel guy. I hate it, though, because I thought he may be a big help but what do I know. How many more won't quality is the big question? And Brandon or someone explain to me what a grey shirt is.

Grayshirt means they are expected to enroll in January instead of in the summer where they could potentially play this fall. Makes it so the NCAA clock on their eligibility doesn't start and they can have an extra year where they could actually redshirt if needed.

So do greyshirts normally have some other kind of scholarship or are they just stuck with that freshman year bill?
