The Tigers are expected to welcome four freshmen wide receivers on campus this fall. Three of those names have been talked about for quite some time.
One has not.
Clemson wide receivers coach Dabo Swinney said Tuesday that he's expecting at least one player out of Aaron Kelly, La'Donte Harris, Andrew Diomonde combination to possibly avoid a redshirt year this fall.
He also listed a new wide receiver that's expected to walk-on in former Chattahoochie High School standout Nelson Faerber.
"One of those guys is going to have to play for us," said Swinney.
"You never know who it's going to be. A lot of times, the guy you think is going to play for you early, doesn't, and then the a guy that you may have thought wouldn't play for you early, does. It's just hard to tell."
Faerber, who attended the same high school as Charlie Whitehurst may be on those players that's given an opportunity for early playing time.
"A lot of people don't know about him yet, but he turned down some Division I-A offers to walk on with us this fall. His name is Nelson Faerber," said Swinney. "We are excited about all of our guys coming in, and I think at least one of them will have the opportunity to play early."
Faerber received an offer from the Air Force and was also drawing interest from Georgia and several other schools around the country last season.
