Parkview tight end Michael Palmer flew under the recruiting radar until just recently, but that doesn't mean he won't be an impact player at the next level.
In fact, when you consider he's been a three-year starer at one of the top high school programs in the nation, you get the sense of what kind of potential he may have.
"He is a great player," said Parkview head coach Cecil Flowe in a recent interview with CUTigers.com. "He played both ways for us as a defensive end and he also was our long snapper.
"His work ethic is tremendous. He is a very hard worker. He is a very talented kid and a real, real smart player."
Flowe also compared him to another tight end from the Parkview program that went on to play at Auburn- Stephen Gowland.
"He's like Gowland expect he's got better hands," said Flowe. "He will be a tremendous, tremendous asset to the Clemson program. I think they really liked his blocking ability, but he can also get open. When they get him situated he will do great things for Clemson."
This past season Palmer caught over 20 passes for 385 yards and five touchdowns for the Panthers.
Palmer Will Be "Tremendous Asset"
