Harper Ready to Compete

Yesterday, we spoke with one of the quarterbacks signed by Clemson in the 2004 class in Tribble Reese. Today, we caught up with the other one- Cullen Harper. The future Tiger signal calller is already at Clemson working out with some of his future teammates.

It's been less than two weeks since Georgia native Cullen Harper arrived at Clemson, but by all accounts, his first 10 days have been nothing but positive.

"Things have been going really well since I got up here," said Harper in an interview with CUTigers.com. "We've been working really hard but it will eventually pay off."

While practice won't get started until the first week of August, many of incoming freshmen have been going through voluntary workouts while attending summer school.

Harper, who arrived in Tiger Town last Monday, has seen a lot of upperclassmen in action already.

"The players that stand out the most are Airese Currie, Chansi Stuckey, Kelvin Grant, Justin Miller, Tye Hill, and Whitehurst has looked solid as well," said Harper.

Harper suffered through an injury riddled senior year that saw him break his collarbone on two occasions. During a healthy junior season, he completed 65-of-130 passes for 1123 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Despite his injuries last season, Harper was still selected to play quarterback in Georgia North-South All-Star game.
