WR Tyler Grisham
5-11, 185, 4.5
Spain Park High School
NR: *** Rating: 87
The Stats: Tyler Grisham totaled 338 receiving yards and six touchdowns as a junior, and he also recorded 62 tackles and five interceptions playing in the defensive backfield.
Strength: Grisham is a two-way standout that has played free safety, wide receiver, and even quarterback during his high school career. He's versatile on the field, and also extremely aggressive once the ball goes in the air.
Why Clemson? "I've known coach Swinney since I was young, so I guess you could say he had a big impact on my decision, but once I got to Clemson, I loved it," said Grisham. "I've been up to the campus a couple of times and went to Clemson camp after my sophomore and junior years and coach Swinney taught me a lot – I feel like I know all I should know, or at least more than I should, because of him."
Interesting Note: Grisham was injured throughout his senior season, but he came back and played quarterback for Spain Park during a late-season playoff run. "I played quarterback those last three games and we won all of our games while I played there," said Grisham. "That was the final regular season game and the first two rounds of the playoffs. We run the spread offense. I don't have the best arm or accuracy so we did a lot of rollouts."
High School Coach Quote: "I think Clemson saw his ability to make people miss him," said Spain Park head coach Vince DiLorenzo. "The competition we play against is among the best in the state of Alabama – which is among the best anywhere. Once he catches the football, he can turn that into yards after catch and make a big play. He's also got great hands. He very rarely drops a pass, a sure-handed receiver."
Coach Swinney Quote: "You should see some of the film on Tyler Grisham. He can go up with anybody and get the football. Plus he's got great speed. We can't wait to get him here to see what he can do at Clemson."
