Wednesday AM Dabo Camp notes

CLEMSON - Day two of the Dabo Swinney Camp is underway, and some of the top prospects from the southeast are in town.

We'll start today's notes with Ahmad Fulwood. Fulwood, if you'll recall, was offered by Clemson recruiting coordinator/wide receivers coach Jeff Scott at the end of the May evaluation period.

Tip of the cap to Scott for going ahead and pulling the trigger. Not only is Fulwood's listed size (6-4, 200) is legit. And so is his skill. The 2013 prospect is very fluid and has a nice set of hands. He's physically gifted, too.

Fulwood can beat the jam off the line and run by a defender down field. Just ask Travis Blanks. After Fulowood beat Blanks, Scott, who recruits Blanks, offered some friendly trash talk.

Blanks looked a little sluggish this morning, but he's still the top defensive prospect on hand.

I didn't say it, but one high school coach I talked to this morning said of Fulwood, "We could be watching a future pro."

Blake Bone isn't quite as physically impressive as Fulwood, not is his skill set as elite, but he's still an impressive looking prospect, and right up there as one of the top receivers at the camp.

Martin Aiken is making a camp stop at Clemson, as he's done throughout his high school career.
Riley Ferguson got plenty of reps in 1-on-1 work with Fulwood. The Butler High School (Matthews, N.C.) quarterback is the best quarterback working out today, a day after another 2013 signal caller with an offer—Brice Ramsey—was on campus. Not positive who gets the nod as the better prospect, but I'm leaning towards Ramsey. Ferguson is a little taller and does have more game experience. Either one would be a nice add for the Tigers.

Ferguson was joined by teammate Peter Kalambayi, who worked out with the linebackers. Defensive coordinator Kevin Steele took occasion to give plenty of personal instruction to Kalambayi during the early portions of the workout.

Another young linebacker (2014), Kevin Crosby, is on hand with several teammates from Bamberg-Ehrhardt. Crosby's such an intriguing prospect because of his size and age. We'll have a more thorough report on him this afternoon.

Martin Aiken, Crosby's four-star teammate, is the top defensive linemen in for the day. Aiken may be a touch shorter than you would like out of an end, but his length allows him to play taller than he is. Aiken abused pretty much everybody put in his way during 1-on-1 drills against offensive linemen. I could have missed it, but I didn't see him against Clemson commitments Patrick Destefano or Jay Guillermo.

The exception to Aiken's dominance was Javarius Leamon. The 1-on-1 matchup, which was setup by defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks, was won by Leamon. And it wasn't even close.

Destefano and Guillermo, by the way, weren't all that impressive during 1-on-1 work. Destefano did show a nice mean streak, really going after defenders.

From what I saw, Leamon is the top offensive linemen at camp. Ninety-Six offensive tackle Oliver Jones would be a candidate if he wasn't sitting out this week. Instead of camping, he's resting the ACL injury which he suffered before the start of last season—probably a smart move on the part of Jones, who hopes to pick up more offers this fall with a good start to his senior season.

Back to the skill guys—Ryan Jenkins, brother of Clemson cornerback Martin Jenkins, is in this afternoon with some teammates from Milton High School (Alpharetta, Ga.). The younger Jenkins is working out with the wide receivers. He's small, like his brother, (5-10, 160-170). Also like his brother, he is lightning-quick. Jenkins is a very good route runner and has a pretty decent set of hands. Jenkins is a rising junior.

Peyton Barber, Jenkins' teammate who is also in for the day, is a 2013 running back who we're hearing is getting interest from Clemson. We'll be sure to keep a close eye on Barber this afternoon, though it's can be tough to get much of an evaluation on running backs at these kinds of settings. Top Stories
