RB C.J. Spiller
5-10, 185, 4.4
Union County High School
Lake Butler, Florida
Strengths: Has outstanding speed and vision. Shows great patience and explodes into the hole when it opens. Is versatile: he has great hands and excels in the return game or when lined up in the slot at wide receiver. Is small, but strong/compact. Has the speed to outrun angles. Makes tacklers miss and has the ability to turn a short screen into a long gainer.
Weaknesses: Biggest challenge will be learning new schemes when he arrives on campus. He is an effective blocker, but will need to learn new blocking schemes and can improve in that area. CJ's high school team ran different sets but was mostly a wing-T run-first offense, so there will be a learning curve. Spiller will need to add strength in order to run through tackles on the Division I level.
Evaluation: piller is the closest thing the 2006 class has to a done deal for avoiding redshirt in the upcoming season. Because of his versatility, Clemson coaches will look to use him in a number of capacities like RB/WR/KR, so he won't necessarily be "splitting" carries with James Davis. Coaches will look to get the ball in his hands any way possible and Clemson fans will enjoy seeing Davis and Spiller on the field at the same time in order to create mismatches against opposing defenses.
