Hines Playing the Waiting Game

David Hines is an impressive running back prospect from North Gwinnett High School in Georgia, and he is a strong lean to Clemson. He needs to take care of some work off the field before he gets an official offer.

"Coach West was in here yesterday, and we sat down and talked with David," said Head Coach Tim Hammondtree. ""He doesn't have any official offers from anyone yet; not until he gets his test scores back from this semester which we'll know in about 2 weeks."

"I think David has it made up in his mind where he wants to go, but he has to prove that academically that he can be a division 1 prospect. No one has offered him anything officially until he has an idea of what his academic future will be next season," Hammontree added.

It is possible for Hines to make a commitment without having an official offer. He would be a sign and place in that scenario, but Coach Hammondtree feels in order for an official offer to be tendered, a student athlete must first qualify. Stay tuned, we should know in the next couple of weeks, and in the meantime good luck to David Hines on his finals.

Hines, who can bench press 350 pounds, squat 450, and runs a 4.5 40, is set with official visits to Clemson (1/10), South Carolina (1/17), and Tennessee (1/24). He was also in attendance for the Tigers' games against Georgia and Louisiana Tech.

The star linebacker was a dual threat this season, seeing extensive action on defense and as a running back for North Gwinnett. His high school career came to a close in a 27-7 loss to Harrison High School in Georgia State Playoffs back on November 22nd. He finished the evening with 90 yards on the ground.
