2007 Signee Superlatives

A somewhat humorous look at the expected 2007 class that will sign tomorrow.

Assuming the current verbal commitments make it official on Wednesday, here's a look at the 2007 Signee Superlatives:

Most Eager to Hit the Field: WR Xavier Dye
He missed most of his senior year after moving from Greenwood to Duncan- you just know Dye is ready to get a full season under his belt.

Mr. Future Television Star: WR Brandon Clear
You don't watch MTV do you?

Most Valuable Signing: QB Willy Korn
The Tigers need help at quarterback and Korn provides a nice boost- both on and off the field.

Most Underrated Signee: DE Miguel Chavis
Chavis emerged on the scene late, but at his size there's no question he has the potential to contribute early in his career.

Least Known Signee: DE Rennie Moore
A broken leg kept Moore out of junior season but after making a full recovery both Clemson and Florida State moved in with offers.

All Eyes on Me Signee: WR Markish Jones
Jones led Clemson fans on a wild ride the last two months of the recruiting process, visiting Florida State along the way.

Mr. All Business Signee: OL Mason Cloy
Simply put, don't mess with anyone in the Cloy family.

Mr. Head Hunter: LB Scotty Cooper.
Don't think you can run from this Lake City legend.

Mr. I'm Bigger Than You: OL Landon Walker
At 6-feet-7 inches tall, 275 pounds, North Wilkesboro's Landon Walker answers to no one. ... except offensive line coach Brad Scott of course.

Biggest Prospect Not Signed: TE Rob Gronkowski
Rob, we really thought you were coming to Clemson, but good luck in Tucson.

Best Nickname: DE Stanley "Buster" Hunter
All the kid did was make play after play for the Byrnes Rebels the last two years.

Mr. I'm Taking Someone's Spot: S DeAndre McDaniel
This future star has already claimed a starting spot at least on the Internet... now all he has to do is prove it on the practice field.

Mr. Utility Man: LB Chad Diehl
Where do ya need me coach? I can play on the OL, or at TE, FB, DE or LB.

The Silent Assassin: CB Marcus Gilchrist
Somewhat quietly, Gilchrist moved up the national rankings all year long, eventually being recogonized as one of the top corners in the country after playing the U.S. Army All-American game.

Biggest Surprise: TE Brian Linthicum
Here's a prospect that has family in New Mexico, played high school football in Charlottesville, Va., and narrowed his choices down to Clemson and California in the recruiting process. Who would of thought he ended up at Clemson?

The Next Big Country: OL Wilson Norris
With Nathan Bennett gone, somebody has to talk to the media about hunting and fishing.

Mr. Smooth Operator: DE Drew Traylor
This 3-star defensive end plays it cool both on and off the field.

Mr. Don't Mistake Me for Big Poppa: DT Jarvis Jenkins
Jarvis Jenkins looks exactly how you'd like a defensive tackle to look: big and mean.
