Marcus Edmond

Why be excited: He's another indication of the recruiting and relationship-building ability of new defensive backs coach Mike Reed, in addition to being a strong, late, in-state pickup who otherwise would have played for an ACC division rival. Edmond is a versatile athlete who has excelled at several positions during his high school career, and has the speed to play the corner.

You may not know:Edmond is the reigning South Carolina state champion in the 400-meter dash.

How he fits into the depth chart: All of Clemson's young defensive backs will get a long look during August camp.
