Temple High School (Temple, GA)
NR: 138 Rating: **
According to sources, former Temple High School star Robert Reese has been cleared to play football at Clemson for the 2003 season.
Reese has been cleared today and should be available for practice immediately. No reason was given for the hold up by the NCAA clearinghouse.
The two way star from Temple High School expects to play cornerback for the Tigers. Reese was an outstanding quarterback in high school but he was also very impressive last season as a free safety.
Last season, Reese had six interceptions and 58 tackles playing in the secondary. In addition, he was considered one of the fastest players in Georgia with 10.8 speed in the 100 meters and he holds the Temple High School record with 19 career interceptions.
In an interview with CUTigers.com last month, Reese was as excited as ever to put on a Tiger uniform in 2003.
"I'm ready to go," said Reese. "I'm really looking forward to practice. I'm ready to put the pads back on, I'm ready to go out and hit someone. I want to test myself. I want to see how I can compete on the next level."
