The college experience for Jock McKissic will begin on Sunday when he and his family travel to Clemson.
The Opelika, Alabama standout will be heading to Clemson with his mother, girlfriend and aunt on Sunday. "I'm getting excited. My mom, my girlfriend and my aunt will be coming with me on Sunday," McKissic told CUTigers.com.
Jock's mother is happy this day has finally arrived. "I'm very excited. I'm too excited to be upset about him going away from home. He's waited a long time for this. I'm going to miss him but I'm glad he is going to get this opportunity."
The Alabama standout will be rooming with 3 of the other players from the 2004 recruiting class. "I will be rooming with Chris Clemons, Mike Hamlin and Barry Richardson. I have talked to Mike some on the phone."
McKissic has worked hard over the past few months to make sure he is in the best condition possible. "I've been running and working out. I'm up to about 287."
"I'm just looking forward to getting my classes and getting started on school. I think I will meet with the coaches on Monday."
