2003 Profile: DE Stanley McClover

Stanley McClover may be the best defensive end in the nation. He mixes good strength with breathtaking quickness and he's camping at schools all over the south this summer. The Stanley McClover tour may be coming to a campus near you.

Stanley McClover may be the best defensive end in the nation. His physical ability is unquestionable. At 6-4 and 236 pounds with a personal best 4.5 forty, McClover is breathtakingly quick. He is camping at several schools this summer to hone his technique and harness is unbelievable physical potential.

"I was at Auburn this Saturday and Sunday," said McClover. "I'm going to NC State, Florida, LSU, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Miami, and Florida State later this summer."

Considered a raw prospect because of his unlimited athletic ability, one can tell that McClover is starting to learn technique too. In a recent camp in which McClover was going through one on one pass rush drills, McClover went inside and outside on his man without being touched. He made it once on pure speed around the edge and once after a quick head fake duped the helpless tackle to the outside. McClover's enthusiasm is infectious as well. He's the type of player that truly looks to be having fun on the football field. Playing with a broad smile, McClover is constantly congratulating and encouraging teammates as well.

McClover will be on the short list of many teams in the nation, but he has not yet begun to narrow his list down. "I like Auburn, LSU, NC State, Miami, Florida, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Clemson the best right now." McClover has all of the tools to be a star no matter where he chooses.
