An Indepth Look at Tymere Zimmerman

We now look at WR Tymere Zimmerman and his probable impact on the 2002 season at Clemson University. Zimmerman, originally out of Marlboro County High School will be one of the most talented players on the football field this upcoming season.

Whether you know it already or not, Tymere Zimmerman might just walk onto campus fall and prove that he is most talented football player wearing a Clemson uniform in 2002. The scary part is, we don't know whether that will be at wide receiver, safety, or both!

Zimmerman (6-3, 206, 4.55), orginially out of Marlboro County High School, attended prep school at Fork Union Military this past season to work on his academics. He still has to improve his test scores, but he is close enough that say that things look extremely optimistic.

WR Ty Zimmerman
Zimmerman is most known for his hands, as he seemingly catches everything thrown his way and that is why he'll immediately be on the two deep depth chart the minute he steps his foot onto campus this fall. He is consistent, strong, and extremely athletic.

As an all-star in the East-West Shrine game, a contest featuring the top athletes from around the nation, Zimmerman led all receivers with 7 catches for 170 yards a year ago. The one thing you really have to love about Tymere, is that he consistently plays above his level of competition, and that fact is proven by his statistics .

When you boil it all down, there isn't much that Zimmerman didn't do in his spectacular high school career at Marlboro County. As a senior he had 49 receptions for 1210 yards and 15 touchdowns, as a junior, he registered 59 catches for 949 yards and 13 touchdowns, and as a sophomore, he recorded 53 catches for 1145 yards and 12 more scores.

All in all, he had 161 catches for 3304 yards and 40 touchdowns in his high school career.

And thats just on offense.

On defense he brought in a mind boggling 27 interceptions and had over 260 tackles while playing safety for Marlboro County. Keep in mind he was also named the most valueable player on his team for 3 consecutive years.

With all of his talent, it will nearly impossible to keep him off the field next season. So mark it down right now, Ty Zimmerman will easily crack the two deep depth chart somewhere this fall, most likely at wide receiver. In fact, he'll likely overtake an existing starter before the season is done.

Doesn't he just make you look forward to next season even more? Top Stories
