Its no secret that the Tigers will still be looking to bring in some quality offensive linemen in 2003.
One of the top prospects coming out of the state of South Carolina next year will be OL B.W. Yates (6'5, 280, 5.4), an enourmous prospect from Stratford High School in Goose Creek.
Yates is a student of the game and a very strong student in the classroom. He carries a 3.2 GPA and scored 1130 on his most recent attempt on the SAT.
He has already started receiving interest from Clemson, as well as several other Division I-A schools.
Yates, who is projected as either an offensive guard or tackle at next level, says his strength lies several areas. "I believe my strengths on the field are pass protection, my footwork, and my understanding of what I am to do on any certain play," says Yates.
Here is our complete question and answer session with B.W.
Which summer camps will you be attending?
I haven't quite decided which camps I am going to attend. I am leaning towards Clemson, Virginia, and/or another offensive linemen camp.
Which schools have shown interest, and which schools are you interested in?
Clemson and several other Division I schools have shown interest. I am interested in Clemson, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia Tech, and Virginia.
Have any Clemson coaches been in touch with you recently?
What are your latest vital stats?
Tell us a little bit about your goals for the upcoming season.
My individual goals for the season are to improve week-by-week, and day-by-day. Our team goals are to improve week-by-week, win region, then win the state championship.
We'd like to conclude by thanking Sandy and B.W. Yates for taking the time out to do our Q & A session.
