Reed anxious to see who put in the work this summer

Clemson cornerbacks coach Mike Reed is anxious to see who put in the work this summer at cornerback when the Tigers begin fall camp on Aug. 3.

Reed, who is entering his fifth season on Dabo Swinney’s staff, has to replace Cordrea Tankersley, who started the last two years for the Tigers at both cornerback positions. Ryan Carter returns and is listed as the starter at boundary corner heading into fall camp. Marcus Edmond, who played a lot in 2016 and made some huge plays, is listed as the starter at field corner.

Behind Carter, and seriously challenging for the starting job, are Trayvon Mullen and K’Von Wallace, while Mark Fields could unseat Edmond on the field side.

“Being away from them since spring ball, you are kind of anxious to see who put in the work, who has matured and things of that nature,” Reed said. “Then bring in the new kids just to see where they fit into the puzzle.”
