The supplier of that spark was East High School [Memphis, Tenn.] running back Brian Kimbrow, who arrived to Clemson just before lunchtime.

Kimbrow, who has not picked up an offer from Clemson, was on his first visit in Clemson, arrived with teammates Will Redmond and Joe Gammon.

"I enjoyed it. It was an intense workout. That's how I like my workouts to be, to be very competitive," Kimbrow told CUTigers.com after the visit.

The 5-foot-9, 165-pound running back, who's been timed in the 40-yard dash at 4.28, spent most of the afternoon working out with running backs coach Tony Elliott.

During the last half of one-on-one drills, Kimbrow worked as a wide receiver against the defensive backs group. The four-star running back shared some friendly trash talk with Clemson defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison.

"It was exciting," Kimbrow said. "It helps me. I always talk trash when I'm working out against someone. It just motivates me to do what I like to do."

At times, he was matched up with Redmond, a three-star cornerback who's picked up an offer from Clemson. Kimbrow also saw time one-on-one with 2013 prospect Tramel Terry.

"There was some nice competition out there. I just tried to make plays," Kimbrow said.

As for what he saw from Clemson, Kimbrow was impressed.

"I like the campus. I got a chance to talk to a couple of players. They said they liked it. I had a pretty good chemistry with a couple of the players," Kimbrow said.

As a junior, he rushed for 1,651 yards and returned two kickoffs for touchdowns. He scored a total of 18 touchdowns and hauled in two interceptions.

Kimbrow rushed for 963 yards on 86 carries as a sophomore.
