Next year Tiger fans might see a wide receiver on the field that reminds them a lot of Tyler Grisham. 2011 commit Adam Humphries reminds many people of the former Clemson stand out.
“It’s an honor to be compared to Tyler because he is an excellent receiver and he is also an excellent person off the field. He is a great role model and I will strive to have the same success that he had at Clemson,” said Humphries.
The 5’11” 176 lbs receiver does not look like he will be in anything but an orange and purple jersey next year.
“My commitment is solid and I do not plan on visiting any other colleges,” said Humphries.
Adam is the second receiver to join the 2011 class along with his Dorman High School teammate Charone Peake. Many things led Adam to end up choosing Clemson.
“I chose Clemson because they want to win and have a lot of great talent that I feel like I can contribute to. Another reason is that all the coaches are close to the players and it’s like a family atmosphere. Also, the fact that I’ll be playing with former teammates from Dorman including Charone Peake,” said Humphries.
What was the biggest reason?
“The biggest factor was the coaches’ relationship with the players and the fact that I feel I can contribute to the team in the future,” replied Humphries.
The top receiver is already working on bringing in help for the offensive line. Adam has been talking to 2012 recruit Patrick DeStefano, who has a scholarship offer from Clemson among other schools, about coming to Clemson.
What does the Dorman standout want to do to solidify the Clemson passing game?
“My goal is to work as hard as possible and do anything that can benefit to Clemson’s passing game,” replied Humphries.
Dorman is very talented and they should be a team to watch this year.
“I believe our team this year has another opportunity to win a state title and we feel we have the talent that is needed,” said Humphries.
This summer the Adam and his teammates continue to work hard at getting better.
“This summer has gone very well we’ve been working hard in the weight room and competing in 7 on 7 tournaments, including the national tournament in Hoover, AL,” said Humprhies.
