Goodman, Shatley Move Up Rankings

A handful of Clemson's verbal commitments for the class of 2009 have new rankings in Scout.com's database.

After turning in an impressive performance at the Scout.com/Under-Armour Combine in Charlotte last month, Clemson verbal commitment and West Florence defensive end Malliciah Goodman made a significant jump in Scout.com's updated prospect rankings released Monday evening.

Goodman, who checked in at 6-feet-3.5 inches tall, 252 pounds, ran a 4.53 40-yard dash and registered a 37.5 vertical jump in Charlotte, is now ranked as the No. 10 defensive end in the country and a four-star prospect.

Also making a big jump is Clemson verbal commitment Tyler Shatley, a fullback out of Icard, N.C.

Shatley, who will likely play on the defensive line at Clemson, has now been designated a three-star prospect and the No. 3 fullback in the nation according to Scout.com.

Dorman offensive lineman Brandon Thomas, a strong Clemson lean, also made a big move up Scout.com's rankings after running a 4.59 in the 40-yard dash last month in Charlotte and is now ranked as the No. 16 offensive tackle prospect in the nation and a four-star prospect.

And finally Clemson's newest commitment, Lake View linebacker Quandon Christian, is now listed as the No. 32 weakside linebacker in the nation and a three-star prospect.
