Taylor Hearn

Why be excited: A tough-minded, hard-nosed run blocker with a bit of attitude, Hearn earned his scholarship offer working at Dabo Swinney's camp and has been committed to the Tigers since last year's signing day. I like the ability to physical with people ever play and put them on their back,” Hearn told the Augusta Chronicle. “You've got to have a thick skin, get mad, and try to hurt people. You can either give or receive a hit – most of the time you want to be the giver.”

You may not know: Hearn has a barbed-wire tattoo, and excelled both on offense and defense at Williston-Elko en route to a Shrine Bowl invitation.

How he fits into the depth chart: He'll join Justin Falcinelli in Clemson's 2014 offensive line class, working in a group that includes 2013 signees Tyrone Crowder and Maverick Morris.
