Roy Philpott- smart move gocutigers- did you smoke Chase Goggans? at the UGA camp? Jad Dean- i don't really know what sold me on becoming a Tiger, i always wanted to play for clemson and couldnt pass up the opportunity Tmassen- who do you see at punter this year? Jad Dean- well when we reported for the camp he was the #1 man and when we left i was #1, i don't know if i smoked him but i improved my status in the coaches eyes Jad Dean- i will try to punt if needed gocutigers- can you return kicks too? gocutigers- LOL Jad Dean- i think i will let J-mil handle that CharlottesFinest- can you block Jad Dean- i don't think we will have to worry about the blocking gocutigers- good idea Jad Dean- i don't know if yall have seen Capote in a while clemsonman7- i can't remember this much hype surrounding a kicker since scott bentley...Jad you better be better than that guy! lol Jad Dean- he is MASSIVE gocutigers- sweet MTPtiger- Jad: Any sign of Big Ced Johnson this summer?

TigerBalm1- he has a miad, doesn;t need a date LOL! CUTigerNut- That's more truthful than you know Pee Dee gocutigers- LMAO!! Jad Dean- Charlotte....i have no clue, i think Capote and Dukes have an excellent chance with their size Jad Dean- i don't know Roy Philpott- What is the longest field goal you've seen Aaron Hunt kick when you guys are working out together? gocutigers- that['s a good one Jad Dean- i have seen aaron hit from 60 several times gocutigers- wow MTPtiger- JDEAZY: Is McDuffie up there yet? Jad Dean- nah, McDuffie aint here yet gocutigers- OL or DL? Jad Dean- aaron wont miss from 45 and in Jad Dean- they say DL Jad Dean- he played only OL at Hargrave Roy Philpott- So your longest is 68, and Aaron's is 60. That give you any confidence if they open up the job for starting PK on field goals? TigerRandy- do you know if Coach Bowden is opening up the first frosh practice to the public? he's done that the past couple of years. MTPtiger- Latest I have heard is that McDuffie will be an OT. clemsonman7- and the tree was much wider than an actual goal clemsonman7- lol TigerBalm1- heard the same MTP Jad Dean- Roy...i mean Aaron has proven himself on the field unlike i have done yet, he has made kicks. he is very solid. i think he will handle the fg's this year but i will try to give him a run for his money gocutigers- just put some heat on him Roy Philpott- I hear ya. I think that's a great way to look at it. CharlottesFinest- just kick it in the endzone CTIGERS1- Jad,do you and other tigers read the message boards much? dazeman- who will be the holder this year? clemsonman7- through the endzone Jad Dean- Charlottes...don't worry i have been kicking off very well lately Paws4Us- Yeah. No Td on KO returns this year! CharlottesFinest- awesome Jad Dean- CTIGERS1...i think about everyone checks this stuff out Jad Dean- everyone of our homepages is set up at either cutigers, tigernet, or tigerroar clemsonman7- i guess we really better watch what we post then gocutigers- does it bother players to read negative stuff on the boards? TigerBalm1- don't kick it to Gibson PLEASE!!!!!! CharlottesFinest- they should all be set to cutigers Jad Dean- clemsonman...most have been about 5-10 yds out of the EZ Roy Philpott- (That's what I was thinking.) LOL. clemsonman7- make it 20 clemsonman7- lol Jad Dean- gocu....some it does, some it doesn't Roy Philpott- That's very impressive for an incoming freshman. Roy Philpott- Are you stuck with #30 for the upcoming season? Jad Dean- Roy... I was doing kickoff demonstrations at the camps this past week and most were about 5-10 through the back. the deepest was 14 yds out and the shortest was 9 yds deep Paws4Us- If your kicking it through the endzone, then we the fans should come up with some catchy thing to do during your kicks. Pee Dee Tiger- Roy could you kick like that when you were there? gocutigers- awesome CharlottesFinest- Jad it might be helpful to tell people how much your watched the boards as a recruit Roy Philpott- The longest I ever made in practice was 53. I was nowhere close. TigerBalm1- what, like that guy from the replacements? Jad Dean- Roy...i am probly stuck with it, i hate to admit it but a frosh PK doesn't have much pull in the equipment room clemsonman7- he's wirry Roy Philpott- Understandable when a 6-5, 300 lineman is staring you down. LOL. gocutigers- BTW thanks JAd for answering all our questions Jad Dean- Charlottes... I think recruits check these boards ALOT more than most think Jad Dean- gocu...any time Pee Dee Tiger- LOL Jad you kick them out and you will get your pick of numbers soon Jad Dean- PEEDEE...i hope Jad Dean- i am gonna TRY to get 7 Jad Dean- that way half the stadium will be wearin my jersey. lol TigerBalm1- Jad, of all the recruits in this years class, who made the best impression on you? Jad Dean- tigerbalm...as far as the funniest it is by FAR Sergio Gilliam Jad Dean- i was with him this past mon-tues at orientation TigerRandy- what were some of the "negative" things other schools told you about Clemson during the recruiting process? Jad Dean- i don't think i stopped laughing Paws4Us- Do the other players give the kickers a hard time? clemsonman7- that guy is a player to boot Jad Dean- Tiger...the only schools that actively recruited me were FSU and UGA, the others would just call and see if i was solid. but FSU and UGA would call every week Jad Dean- i didnt get much neg. recruiting Jad Dean- Paws...nah not really, just about how easy of a practice we have. but i already knew that TigerBalm1- Did you get to meet Bobby, what is he like? Jad Dean- TigerRandy...nah i didnt get one of those TigerBalm1- bowden that is clemsonman7- didn;t FSU offer you AFTER Chase Coggins commited? Jad Dean- TigerBalm...Bobby Bowden is a super guy Jad Dean- clemsonman7...yeah they did TigerTdub- Have you talked to CJ lately and is he excited about coming to clemson clemsonman7- i wonder who they wanted more>= i think that's pretty apparent with that offer coming after the Coggins commitment Paws4Us- UGA prediction? Jad Dean- TigerTdub...i talked to CJ today and he is just ready to get the All Star game over with and get here gocutigers- I love CJ's attitude Jad Dean- Paws...hopefully clemson will be on top gocutigers- Capote too TigerBalm1- Can't wait to see him in August Jad Dean- i don't want to get into any predictions but if it came down to a kick, i would love to have a chance to knock it through Roy Philpott- Great answer! gocutigers- AMEN!!!! TigerRandy- that's the answer of a "winner" Paws4Us- We want you to kick it too! Roy Philpott- Were you ever involved in any fake FG's at Greenwood and is there any chance we see you doing that at Clemson? gocutigers- Is ti August 30 yet? madhatter00- from 65 yards!!! clemsonfanatic- Jad....do you know what you wanna major in? Jad Dean- Roy... nah we never faked at GHS, Coach Dula is old school Jad Dean- clemsonfanatic...most likely Bio gocutigers- is Proctor the holder? Jad Dean- madhatter00...i would love it CharlottesFinest- well that will change with TB Jad Dean- gocu...nah Gene Pate holds for Hunt Jad Dean- and Chason holds for Furr Jad Dean- i don't have one yet CUTigerNut- Jad, how about any on-side kicks? Get any of them in during high school? Jad Dean- CUTigerNut...actually, i have kicked 3 and we recovered them all Roy Philpott- How has Cole Chason looked on his punts? Have you guys worked out together at all? madhatter00- don't do it against NC state TigerBalm1- I hope they are not necessary this year TigerTdub- Have you been at CU this summer? you may have answered that already I am late. Jad Dean- Roy...Cole is just gettin up here. so i havent kicked him yet MTPtiger- PLEASE tell me Chason can punt!! clemsonman7- wow that's much better than the usual 15% or so recovery rate Jad Dean- TigerTdub...yeah i have been at Clemson all summer TigerRandy- what are some of your hobbies/interests besides football?

MTPtiger- punter CharlottesFinest- just tell them to call you money Jad Dean- eyeofdatigr...i love Adam Vinateiri, he doesn't miss clutch kicks Roy Philpott- Has it actually dawned on you yet that you'll be playing D-I college football in front of 85,000 people in less than 60 days?
