Russell Hemby Profile
6'1, 200, 4.5
Orangeburg-Wilkinson High School
Orangeburg-Wilkinson QB Russell Hemby has had an incredible senior season. As one of the top dual threat quarterbacks in the Palmetto state, he's completed 73-of-123 passes for almost 1,400 yards and 18 touchdowns.
The last time CUTigers.com touched base with Hemby, he indicated his top schools were East Carolina, Maryland, and Vanderbilt. How do things stand for him now?
"I'm getting a lot of mail from most schools, but I think Maryland, Vanderbilt, and East Carolina are all close to offering," said Hemby.
Hemby, brother of Clemson reserve cornerback Ryan Hemby, took in the Tigers' Homecoming game against Wake Forest this past weekend in Death Valley.
"It was fine; basically the same routine at any of all my other Clemson visits. It was a great atmosphere and a big win," said Hemby.
As a junior, Hemby passed for 1,825 yards and rushed for more than 300 yards and was a part of 16 total touchdowns. He camped at both South Carolina and Clemson this summer, and he also attended the NIKE camp in Athens.
"Camp was a lot of fun this summer, I got the chance to see a lot of top quarterbacks in South Carolina and the nation. I was really impressed with the facilities at both schools (South Carolina and Clemson), and also at Georgia.
His lone offer remains from South Carolina State, but based on his peformance on the field this season, more should start rolling in at any time. Most schools like him as a quarterback, and Russell has indicated on more than one occasion that quarterback is his preference at the next level.
"I'm playing quarterback right now, and I've been playing since I put a helmet on. The colleges want me as a quarterback, so that's what I'll be playing," said Hemby.
We will continue to keep you updated on Russell Hemby throughout the rest of the season through February.
