2002 Update: Irvin Brisker

The latest on big defensive-end Irvin Brisker out of Conyers, Georgia. Rumors have been swirling around Irvin, and his verbal commitment to Clemson University.

Irvin Brisker (6'7, 265) is all set to visit the Tigers this weekend, and even more importantly, he is still firm in his commitment Clemson University.

Brisker will still keep his visit to the University of South Carolina on the weekend of January 18th, but it now appears that the Gamecocks will not be a significant factor in the recruiting process.

Brisker is already starting to heat it up on the basketball court, where he averages over 14 points and 6 rebounds as the starting center for the Rockdale County basketball team.

Irvin, one of the top players in the Atlanta metropolitan area, camped at Clemson this summer and was so impressed by his visit that he gave his verbal commitment right on the spot.

"I camped there this summer and felt at home there. I like Coach West, and I felt very comfortable with the small town atmosphere," says Brisker.

Most experts who have seen Brisker play agree that with his frame, he could easily put on another 20-25 pounds. At that size, he would be an absolute terror on the football field, especially with his speed. He is undoubtedly one of the top recruits in Tommy Bowden's 2002 recruiting class.
