Georgia Junior Bowl Insider

ATLANTA – Several 2013 prospects with Clemson offers are participating in the second Georgia Junior bowl. CUTigers was on hand for Wednesday's practice sessions.

RB Tyshon Dye - The running back from Elbert County who we featured earlier today is one two Clemson running back targets playing in Friday's game. It's pretty apparent why Clemson is so high on this guy. He's got a nice blend of size, speed and athleticism. Not only is he a top-tier running back, Dye has a nice set of hands. The East quarterbacks had no problem checking the ball down to him in 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 work.

DT Montravious Adams - For Clemson, it's a good thing they've already offered, because they flood gates are about to open. Earlier this week, Adams got word that Alabama should be next. The defensive tackle is probably one of the top-10 prospects in the state and he really likes Clemson. Offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell has done a nice job helping the Tigers reach his No. 1 spot.

WR Ryan Jenkins - The younger brother of Martin Jenkins, a Clemson sophomore cornerback. The Tigers have offered him as a wide receiver. Very much like his brother, Jenkins may be undersized but he's got good speed and quickness. Also like his brother, he's a fierce competitor. After the morning session, Jenkins was running routes and catching passes while most of his teammates were resting for the afternoon session.

DT Kelsey Griffin - Not a guy with a Clemson offer, but one that certainly is good enough to have one. The defensive tackle plays with nice leverage and uses his hands pretty well. He spent a good deal of time blowing past would-be blockers to wreak havoc in the backfield. Has a nice motor, too, was in on several tackles because of his pursuit from the backside.

CB Darius Curry - Clemson has been really particular about their DB offers for the 2013 class. At 6-1, Curry meets the height requirements that defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison looks for in his guys. The Tigers' staff will evaluate Curry's junior film and see if he's worth an offer. He's very high on Clemson.

DE Carl Lawson - Though he might be a little undersized for a defensive end, he was all over the place in the morning practice. Lawson spent plenty of time in the face of the East quarterbacks during 11-on-11 work. Auburn, for now, is showing the most interest.

OL Delando Crooks - The Atlanta offensive lineman recently picked up offers from Georgia and Georgia Tech. Though he's still learning to play the game, Crooks has a ton of upside. He's only 260 and has great feet and is very athletic.

Others to note…
RB Wayne Gallman - Though he was scheduled to play in this year's game, Gallman was sidelined with a leg injury. Clemson is among his offers and he really likes the Tigers.

LB Mario Mathis - During the afternoon session, Mathis suffered an injury to his left knee, which already had a brace on it. He camped at Clemson over the summer.
