Jae'lon Oglesby

Why be excited: The two-time Independent Mail player of the year rushed over 4,500 yards his junior and senior seasons, accounting for over 50 touchdowns. The longtime Clemson commit is speedy, can shake defenders and can catch the ball out of the backfield.

You may not know: He joins a long line of Daniel (S.C.) family at Clemson, but he's actual family (cousins) to current Tigers Deshawn Williams and Shaq Lawson and former Tiger DeAndre Hopkins.

How he fits into the depth chart: With no clear No. 1 RB for Clemson in 2014, Oglesby will be one in a crowded backfield that includes redshirt freshmen Wayne Gallman and Tyshon Dye and potentially true frosh C.J. Fuller (Easley).
