QB Strengthens Commitment to Clemson

C.J. Gaddis is an awesome high school athlete who could play a variety of positions at the college level - QB, RB, WR, S, CB -- any position that requires athleticism. The Tigers like him as a quarterback though, and it appears he'll likely be the only signal caller taken in the 2003 recruiting class.

Hoke County quarterback C.J. Gaddis had the opportunity to take in the Tigers' game against the Gamecocks last weekend, and he came away quite impressed.

"It was crazy at the game this past weekend. I had a great time at the game. You're either a Clemson fan or a Gamecock fan. There's no in between, the atmosphere was awesome" Gaddis said.

The senior quarterback out Raeford, North Carolina also says that he is solid on his verbal commitment to Clemson University.

"I still bleed orange and purple, and I'm going to be there next year. Coach Bowden and Coach O'Cain were the two big reasons that I even considered Clemson in the first place. Coach O'Cain calls me every Sunday and we'll talk for a good while just about anything," said Gaddis.

Gaddis will likely still take official visits to Georgia and North Carolina, as well as Clemson, but the Tigers figure to have little to worry about in the recruiting process.

"Coach O'Cain has said that they'll give me a shot at quarterback until I prove I can't play there, so I feel pretty good about that."

Gaddis was instrumental in leading Hoke County into the 2nd round of the playoffs, before losing to Winston-Salem Reynolds last weekend by a score of 28-21.

His next trip to Tiger Town will be for the big recruiting weekend on January 10th. We will continue to keep you updated on one of the Tigers' top prospects, right through signing day!
