Kelvin German (5'11, 190, 4.5) out of Sandy Creek High School in Atlanta, Georgia is quite possibly one of the Tigers' best chances at signing a quality running back in the 2002 class.
Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Northwestern have all offered while Clemson, West Virginia, Georgia Tech and Auburn continue to look closely at him.
Even though Clemson has yet to formally offer German, the Tigers appear to be his favorite.
"I really like the conditioning program thats been established there and the offense would fit me pretty good," says German.
"I'd say they are my favorite at this point."
German has seen his stock steadily rise all season as he has been going after J.R. Lemon's career rushing mark at Sandy Springs High School. (Lemon was one of the top RB recruits in the country last year who ended up going to Stanford.)
German has decent speed and great quickness on the field, "I am elusive and I have more speed than power," Kelvin told recruiting expert Jamie Newberg in a recent interview. Perhaps that 4.5 number in the 40 is a bit deceptive, as German can hit the corners and turn up field with best of them.
You'd have to believe that this fine student-athlete is somewhere up there on the Tigers' recruiting board at running back right behind Reggie Merriweather. We will keep you updated as we receive more information, but look for an offer extended to German sometime soon from the Clemson Tigers.
