DB Tanner Muse Profile
Muse took some time to speak with CUTigers Saturday morning to
conclude what the last couple of weeks have been like.
"I had graduation practice yesterday," said the senior. "I graduate
today, then I'm heading to the beach till Saturday, then I report
Muse has not been to Clemson recently. As a two-sport star in high
school, he finished his high school baseball season recently for South
Muse has spent a lot of time and effort into an attempt to play both
football and baseball at Clemson and spent the last couple of weeks
playing on the diamond for the Gastonia Grizzlies.
"It was a lot of fun competing with all of the guys at that level,"
he said. "There are no easy at-bats. You have to compete every pitch
and try to stay ahead in the count. I felt pretty good. I put the ball
in play almost every at-bat and got a couple hits as well."
Because of Muse's ties to Clemson in both football and baseball, he's
been following both programs closely, and that was no different as
Clemson recently parted ways with Jack Leggett after 22 years.
"I don't really know the reasoning behind it all, but I think he's a
great coach. I support Clemson's decision, but I hope to get to know
the new coach soon - whenever they hire him - and hopefully he will
give me a shot at playing baseball too," he said.
As he nears the time to return to a helmet and pads, Muse spoke about
what it's going to be like preparing for football season again.
"It'll be tough - demanding mentally and physically. I expect it
almost to be like a job - clocking in and out, putting in the hours
but enjoying every step." Muse continued saying, "Getting up to speed
with the guys already there will be an adjustment since they have a
head start on me. I want to do everything I can to make an impact on
the team early."
Muse spent time playing both safety and linebacker in high school. He
is 6-foot-4, 220 pounds and was rated as the No. 1 outside linebacker
from North Carolina by Scout for the 2015 class.
