S Tanner Muse Profile
The good news for Brent Venables and the rest of the defensive staff
is that reinforcements are on the way. 2015 signee Tanner Muse
(Belmont, N.C.) from South Point High School was able to make a trip
to town for Clemson's annual spring game. Muse visited with CUTigers
to recap the visit and the conclusion of his high school career.
"It was reassuring on the things I need to do when I come in," said
Muse. "Being able to watch the new guys in my class and how they
adjust to the next level. I'd probably have to say I'm the closest
with Garrett Williams. He's just a genuine guy. You can tell that when
you first talk to him, and he's a very physical player."
Muse has been known as a versatile player in high school, playing both
offense and defense. Defensively, Muse has moved around between
linebacker and safety, and that may not change at Clemson.
"I'm probably going to play half and half. I'm gonna do the nickel
back, I'm pretty sure." Muse continued saying, "I just want to come
in, compete for a spot and be able to help in any way I can."
As a football player Muse has seen a number of different looks, but he
also has experience as a two-sport athlete that he expects to use at
Clemson. Muse is in the midst of finishing his senior baseball season
and is looking to juggle both sports for the Tigers. "I think the
biggest challenge will probably be traveling and trying to keep up
with classes," he said.
Muse noted his success this baseball season in saying, "I've just
started to click at the plate, and our team is in second place for
conference. Our goal is to win conference and make a deep run in the
Lastly, Muse described what it's taken for him to have success as a
two-sport athlete throughout high school. "In football probably my
aggressiveness and physicality. In baseball my speed in the outfield
and my bat are my best attributes."
Muse was rated as a 3-star outside linebacker by Scout. He is listed
at 6-foot-4, 220 pounds and is rated as the No. 1 outside linebacker
to come out of North Carolina for the class of 2015.
