Why be excited: He's an under-the-radar small-school guy with physical attributes as impressive as any receiver in the country of his build. At 6-5, 200, Seckinger could, down the road, end up as a mobile, pass-catching tight end, but he'll likely get his first shot as a member of the wide receiving corps. He's accustomed to being a go-to receiver, and has shown the ability to catch the football - more than 100 receptions as a senior - despite being a marked man. And he's got some eye-catching 'measurables,' having cleared 6-7 in the high jump and having a 40-inch vertical jump.
You may not know: He's the first player from Charleston's Porter-Gaud High School to sign a Division 1 football scholarship since Atlanta Falcons' Pro-Bowl fullback Ovie Mughelli signed with Wake Forest in 1999.
Where he fits into the depth chart: Seckinger committed to Clemson after agreeing to a possible 'grayshirt' scenario, which might not be necessary depending on how academic qualification and final numbers work out for the overall recruiting class next summer. As he transitions from playing against small-school competition, it's likely that he'll redshirt his first season.
