RB Andre Ellington
Berkeley High School
Signed with Clemson
SM: Andre, how's it been going lately?
AE: Everything's been going good. I've been working out hard; four days a week. I've already started running. I'm just trying to get back in shape, and trying to get my speed right.
SM: Have you heard from any of the other guys from the 2008 signing class that'll be joining you at Clemson?
AE: I heard from Brandon Ford a couple of weeks ago, and Jaron Brown called me a few days ago. We were kind of talking about how things are going to go whenever we all stay together.
SM: When was the last time you went up to Clemson?
AE: I was up there for the Spring Game. It was pretty wild… They had a pretty nice crowd out there to say it was a spring game. I got to meet up with some of the coaches. We caught up on old times, since I haven't seen them in a while.
SM: Has the coaching staff said anything to you about possibly red-shirting next fall?
AE: No sir. Actually they expect me to be playing about midway through the season. They never said anything about red-shirting.
SM: How do you feel about that?
AE: I feel great about it. That just lets me know that I've got to work hard; I can't slack off or anything.
SM: What can Clemson fans expect from you as a player?
AE: Hard work, great talent, a great mind, and a big heart…
SM: Andre it's been great seeing you again. On behalf of the staff from SCPrepNation.com, we wish you much success with your career at Clemson University. Take care!
