After Stanton Seckinger proved himself among the best of the best wide receivers at camp last summer, he knew a full Clemson offer could be in the cards.

The 6-foot-5, 200-pound wide receiver from Porter-Gaud High School in Charleston was offered by N.C. State in June. Clemson followed shortly after his camp stay by extending a grey-shirt with the caveat that it could become a full offer.

By mid-November, he was a commitment in the 2012 class and a signee in February before word came earlier this spring that his offer was full.

This summer, Seckinger and former Porter-Gaud teammate William Hyman, a walk-on linebacker at North Carolina, have trained at Pro Sports Academy in Charleston with former NFL running back Travis Jervey.

"We'll just get up real early in the morning at 7 o'clock in the morning and then we'll come back at about 3:30 and do another workout. That's kind of been consuming a lot of my days," Seckinger said. "We'll do that Monday through Friday. Saturday morning, I'll just workout in the mornings and then just hang out and go fishing."

June's trip to Clemson was planned with roommate Eric MacLain, who was travelling down with his brother and cousin for the second session of the Dabo Swinney Football Camp. During the visit, which was Seckinger's last before he moves to Clemson on Sunday, he and MacLain worked out with the team.

"I'm moving with everybody July 3, with
Morgan [Roberts], Colton [Walls] Eric. The fifth and six is orientation. We start practice and workouts on the seventh," Seckinger said. "When we get up there, we'll be taking classes and working out. Two-a-days start in August."

And Seckinger will get his first chance to crack the wide receiver rotation at Clemson. He'll arrive with a five star, Sammy Watkins, and two four-stars, Martavis Bryant and Charone Peake.

Seckinger is not sure what to expect in the competition for playing time.

"I guess, the mentality is right now, work as hard as you can, get up there and do what you can do," he said. "If that isn't enough and you need another year or two to prepare, then so be it.

"Right now, I'm not setting any goals for wanting this many snaps a game, this much playing time a game or whatever. I'm just going to work as hard as I can. What happens—happens."
