TCITV: Gilchrist Back Home at Corner

By

Since he arrived at Clemson as an All-American out of High Point, NC Marcus Gilchrist has wanted to be a lockdown corner for the Tigers.  The Tiger’s depth chart made it difficult for Marcus to find a starting spot until last season when he made the move to safety to help the defense.   Now he is finally home at corner.

Gilchrist is one of the leaders for this years defense, but also will likely be one of the starters on kickoff and punt returns.  Marcus looks forward to a big senior year now that he is in position to make a big impact in Death Valley.

TheClemsonInsider.com caught up with the senior corner after Saturday’s practice.  Watch Marcus discuss the move back to corner, the 2010 defense, the return game and much more!
