Temple High School (Temple, GA)
NR: 138 Rating: **
THE STATS: On defense he had six interceptions and 58 tackles playing in the secondary. In addition, Reese is one of the fastest players in Georgia with 10.8 speed in the 100 meters and he holds the Temple High School record with 19 career interceptions.
STRENGTH: Robert is a versatile athlete that could come in a provide help at a number of positions, but cornerback appears to be the spot the coaching staff has in my mind for him initially. He has outstanding quickness and has made plays on both sides of the ball throughout his high school career.
WEAKNESS: The Tigers want Reese to play at cornerback, but there still remains a strong probability that he could be moved to safety later in his career. Reese will need to get into the weight room and improve his strength if he's going to become an impact player in the coming seasons.
WHY CLEMSON? "I loved my visit to Clemson back in January. Justin Miller and Jamaal Fudge were my hosts and they were great," said Reese. "They talked about me playing early, so if the opportunity is there, then obviously I'm going take it. I'm just ready to get up there and play football. I know it's going to be a big change, but I'm looking forward to it. They also talked to me about returning kicks and punts, so that's in the mix as well. We'll just have to see how it goes once I get there next fall; I really can't wait. Coach Bowden has been great, he seems like a real cool customer and I like that a lot."
TOMMY BOWDEN: "He's going to be a good one for us. He's real versatile and can play a number of different positions, but we'll give him a look in the secondary first. That's were we need help the most right now."
