25. OL Mason Cloy, RS Sr.
Cloy has logged over 1,500 snaps in 38 games during his Clemson career. With 19 starts under his belt, the versatile senior will provide depth at center and both guard positions this coming season.
THE RESUME: Cloy was moved into the starting lineup one game into the 2008 season. He finished second among Clemson offensive linemen with 12 starts and tied a school record for starts by a freshman offensive lineman.
A first-team Academic All-ACC selection in 2009, Cloy started five of the 13 games he played in. After suffering a broken leg in the second half of the ACC Championship, Cloy was sidelined for the Music City Bowl. He logged 522 snaps and finished third on the team with 52 knockdown blocks.
Selected again to the Academic All-ACC team in 2010, Cloy played 356 snaps in 2010. He started at left guard against Miami and North Carolina when starter David Smith went down with an injury.
MOVING FORWARD: Before Cloy's injury in 2009, Dalton Freeman pushed Cloy out of the starting center spot. Still, for 2010, Cloy was penciled in as the starter at left guard with the upcoming departure of Thomas Austin. Instead, Smith won the job, keeping Cloy in a reserve role.
Cloy remains a vital piece to the Tigers' offensive line even though he does not project as one of the first five to see the field. His ability to play left guard, right guard or center adds plenty of value to an offensive line that is thin on experienced reserves. With Chad Morris employing his hurry-up, no huddle offensive attack, Cloy's presence will be welcomed up front.
Upon the conclusion of spring practice, Cloy was third on the team in bench press (430) and tied for first in the power clean (370).
No. 25: Mason Cloy
