Top Linebacker Listing Clemson

Michael Briggs was a Nike Camp standout as a sophomore, and he went and had an even better season on the field the last fall. Briggs compiled 189 tackles and 7 sacks as a junior. He set some high expectations for his senior year, but he is poised for an even bigger season this fall.

"We ended up winning the state Championship," said Briggs. "We went 11-4 on the season. We are AA, and we started the season with some AAAA and AAA teams. We had a quarterback change after our second league loss, and we never lost again."

At 6-1 and close to 230 pounds with a 4.6 forty, Briggs is ideally suited to play middle linebacker, but he could also end up on the offensive side of the ball.

"I'm mainly being recruited to play linebacker, but some of the schools have talked to me about playing some fullback too. Right now, I like playing defense better. I grew up a fan of North Carolina, but I'm pretty much wide open right now. I like North Carolina, NC State, Clemson, Tennessee, and South Carolina the best right now."

Briggs is an excellent student that stands a good chance of enrolling early next December in the school of his choice. His talent on the field coupled with his dedication in the classroom will make him one of the top linebacker prospects in the south this year. Top Stories
