Brian Linthicum, a 6-5, 230 pound tight end prospect will travel to Clemson this weekend to begin his college career.

"I will be coming down to Clemson on the 7th. I am in Charlottesville now. I already have my car about half full. I need to finish cleaning out my dorm. I will be driving down by myself," Linthicum told CUTigers.com.

The holidays allowed Brian to go home and spend some time with his family before he enrolls at Clemson.

"It was good. It was nice to good to have time to relax with my family. I went out to New Mexico. I did some lifting at home. We have a community college right by the house. I lifted every other day."

What is Linthicum looking forward to most about getting to Tigertown?

"I am just looking forward to hanging out with the guys. Landon [Walker] called me earlier while I was at dinner. I want to form some good relationships with them. I am just looking forward to starting out my football career. I want to start lifting and putting on some weight," replied Linthicum.

The star tight end also watched the Music City bowl with his family and came away impressed with the tight end play.

"I watched it at home with my parents," he said. "The tight ends played well. I was happy with that. One of them scored a touchdown and another scored a two-point conversion. I was disappointed in the outcome. I look forward to helping contribute next season as much as I can."

Clemson tight ends coach Billy Napier has been talking frequently with his future tight end.

"I actually talked to coach Napier today," Linthicum said. "We just talked about when I will be getting there. He tells me he is ready to teach me everything I need to know so that I can come in and compete this spring."

What are some of Linthicum's goals for the spring?

"I really haven't set any yet," he said. "I would like to get to around 240 pounds by the end of the spring. I am around 230 right now. I also want to learn the offense and just do what I can to help the team," replied Linthicum.
