Corico Hawkins will lead the defense from the MIKE position again in 2011. TheClemsonInsider.com caught up with Hawkins after Saturday’s scrimmage.
“I think we did a lot of good things today. We just keep progressing from the first practice until today. We don’t have a lot of things to correct, just some little things. I think we should have tackled better as a group. We are deep into camp now so legs are tired,” said Hawkins.
How are the true freshmen doing at linebacker?
“Those guys are picking it up well. Like I said they did a great job recruiting these young men. Those guys are smart. Comparing them to me when I came in I didn’t know nothing. They are doing well picking up the defense. They are learning more every day,” said Hawkins.
Playing against the up tempo offense every day is helping Corico become a better player.
“I think I am becomming a better player in two ways, one conditioning and two being able to think quicker,” said Hawkins.
