From Bobby Hutchinson's standpoint- everything appears to be a go. The recruiting process is over, his LOI has been signed, and now he's ready to hit the books harder than ever before.

"I'm working hard on that right now," said Hutchinson in a recent interview with "I'm just a point or two short on my ACT, but I'm going to make it. I'm not worried about it."

Hutchinson took the ACT this past weekend and says that he feels pretty good about it. "I do. I'll find out the results in probably 4 or 5 weeks or so."

Hutchinson, who is considered to be one of the more underrated prospects to sign with the Tigers last Wednesday, graded out at 91% this past season playing as a left tackle at Madison County High School.

For his play, he was also named to the Cali-Florida All-Star game.

"That was a great experience," said Hutchinson. "It was cool to go out there and play against some of the best players in the country. I didn't start the game, but I played a lot and it was really a great experience for me."

And while Hutchinson excelled at tackle during his senior season, he'll be making a big switch once he arrives on campus.

"They want me as a center, and I'm more than fine with that," said Hutchinson. "I can play a number of positions."

Clemson assistant coach Dabo Swinney also says that Hutchinson was an excellent find by the Tigers' coaching staff.

"He's a guy that we loved on film," said Swinney. "He played some center, but he's athletic enough to play tackle. He's a big, strong, physical kid that loves the game."

Aside from getting everything in order on the academic side of things, Hutchinson plans on spending most of his time this offseason conditioning for the start of practice later this fall.

"I'm on the track team with the shot-put and the discus. That's going pretty well for me, but I know I've got a lot of work ahead of me."
