Tigers Among Leaders for 2012 LB


By Keith McGonigle.

The one area that Clemson has turned its focus to in the 2011 and 2012 classes seem to be the linebacker position.  The Clemson coaching staff really would like to add some young talent and depth to the linebacker position, one player that could help is 2012 standout linebacker Dillon Lee.

The talented linebacker already has offers from five schools.

“I got offers from Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Clemson and Miami.  The order as of right now is Alabama, South Carolina, Clemson Miami, and then North Carolina,” said Lee.

What does he like about Clemson?

“I have been there, it is really nice, and so are their facilities,” replied Lee.

What is the most important thing for the playmaker from Buford, Georgia?

“I will be looking at schools in January and the rest of the off-season, I want to go somewhere that I am wanted,” replied Lee.

Clemson looks to be in good shape; they offered him early in October and showed they had interest in him not only as a linebacker, but also as an athlete.

“They offered me a scholarship as an athlete, tight end or linebacker.”

The 6’4” 225 lbs athlete, that also runs a 4.49 in the 40, had another successful year on the gridiron,

“The season went good; we won state for the 4th year in a row.  I had 84 tackles, 6 for loss, 5 interceptions, 2 returned for touchdowns, 3 forced fumbles and 16 catches for 10 touchdowns,” said Lee.
