Rennie Moore, a 6-5, 255 pound defensive end prospect out of Camden County (Ga.), has almost fully recovered from a broken leg that made him miss his junior season.

"I am about 95% now," he told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I am basically there. I have been working hard this summer, trying to cut down a few pounds. Right now I am currently about 6-5, 255."

Moore, who is still very firm in his commitment to Clemson, says he's glad he put the recruiting process behind him earlier in the year.

"I'm glad I got that out of the way," he said. "I don't have to worry about all of the schools coming knocking. I got in the school I really want to play at. My parents really helped me out with the decision.

"I talk to coach Rumph, coach Vic and Tommy a lot. They keep saying they can't wait for me to come up there. They know I'm 100% firm."

What position will Moore end up playing at Clemson?

"I may play defensive end or I may play bandit," he said. "There is still some discussion about where I will play. This year I am going to play tight end and strong side defensive end."

Speaking of Rennie's senior year, what kind of goals has he set for himself? "I want to rack up about 85 tackles," he responded. "I want to get about 15 sacks. Those are the main goals."

Moore also said he has high expectations for Camden County this fall.

"We have got a lot offensive talent. Defensively we are the same ole killer defense. We got some new weapons on offense. We have got a good shot at the state. So far practice is going good. We started last week. We were in shorts last week. Today was our first day in full pads," he said.

The season opener will be in the Georgia Dome.

"Yeah on September 2 we play against Brookwood in the Dome. I can't wait," Moore added.
