OL Chris Hairston
Carver High School
Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Strengths: Hairston has good feet and great mobility. His speed and quickness are his biggest strengths right now. He has the frame to play at or over 300lbs. Also has long arms and a lot of growth potential. Athletic. Has the height and athletic ability to play tackle in college.
Weaknesses: Hairston doesn't have the strength needed to come in and make an immediate impact at this point. He is raw and is just learning the game of football. Technique will have to be improved upon arrival at campus. Does not have the strength to push and dominate defenders.
Film Evaluation: Hairston showed good mobility against Shrine Bowl competition. He's very fluid and was able to move down field and position himself well to make blocks on the second level. He obviously will have to camp out in Joey Batson's weight room and a diet full of protein will help him reach his ideal size, which will be right around 300 pounds. Hairston is athletic, but will have to be taught proper techniques and footwork to be a successful offensive tackle. He is not a player that will make an impact right away, but again Clemson is in a great position to be able to develop linemen over the next two years.
