Anthony: "We are going to be special"

By

Clemson’s defense is about to get a talent infusion from their top linebacker class ever.  5-star linebacker Stephon Anthony is working hard to be ready to compete right away when he enrolls at Clemson. 

“Things are going well.  I am doing conditioning and trying to get my body in the best shape possible.  I have been working out after school with some of the guys.  I have been working hard to be ready to go,” said Anthony.

Coach Brooks keeps in touch with the future Tiger.

“I talked to coach Brooks today.  We were just keeping in touch.  He wanted to know how my workouts are going.  He can’t wait to get me on campus,” said Anthony.

In just over three months the Anson County standout will enroll at Clemson.

“I will be enrolling on July 5,” said Anthony.

How does Stephon feel about leaving home in a few months for Clemson?

“It is winding down.  You try to prepare yourself mentally.  You try to get yourself ready to go to war,” replied Anthony.

The All-American expects to be help the Tigers right away.

“I feel like I have a great opportunity to come in and play early.  I have to step in and be ready to play hard and compete,” said Anthony.

The prize recruit thinks the Tigers 2011 defense will be one of the best.

“We are going to be special on defense.  It is going to tell us a lot how hard we work over the summer,” said Anthony.

Earlier this month the top linebacker visited Clemson to start learning coach Steele’s defense.

“I went down for spring practice a few weeks ago.  I talked with coach Steele and started to the learning curve,” said Anthony.

Stephon will be back at Clemson in April.

“I will be down for the spring game,” said Anthony.
