Why be excited: A rangy, lean, athletic defensive back who can run with receivers, with excellent coverage skills. Needs to improve his tackling, but has great hands and could be a wide receiver, but fits in well as a cornerback, where he says Clemson projects him.
You may not know: A standout basketball player, he also got interest from Clemson and College of Charleston on the hardwood.
How he fits into the depth chart: With Marcus Gilchrist, Bryon Maxwell and DeAndre McDaniel graduating, there is plenty of playing time in the Tigers' secondary. He could see early action at cornerback.
High School: Mainland (Florida)
Weight: 180 lbs.
40 tackles, one interception (also 700 yards receiving for 11 TDs) in senior season
