CLEMSON. Saturday afternoon session was a bit totally different from what we’re used to seeing in
Dabo Sweeneycollege camp.

Because the temperature soared, the variety of vacationers started to extend, and two of the primary ones arrived on a golf cart with recruiting assistant Zack Fulmer. 4-star midfielder Kua Birdsong and four-star defender Noah Dixon, each LaGrange (Georgia) Trope County, had been shut at hand. Birdsong is a 2024 perspective with choices from Ole Miss, Georgia Tech and Notre Dame.

The slender Birdsong weighs in at 180 kilos however has loads of room for further weight. Dixon obtained a suggestion from Clemson as early as June 1.

* Instead of safety, Thompson Subject practiced beneath the shut consideration of a defensive sort out coach Nick Eason.

Then he informed him to eliminate the rigor mortis in his palms—he clenched his palms like Fred Sanford from his arthritis—and informed him to calm down.

* I’ll have extra later, however I needed to depart yet one more be aware. There was a household there that did the hike from Sacramento, California with two 2023 prospects (one quarterback and one working again). They had been at UCLA and Southern California camps, however he needed to convey them east and thought Clemson was the right camp to be seen…
