Hoping to get an early start to their college careers, almost all of Clemson’s 2015 commitments will enroll in January. Over the next few weeks, TheClemsonInsider will take an individual look at each player who will arrive next month.

His Background. Fruhmorgen’s first visit to Clemson was in February for Junior Day. He returned a month later to watch spring practice, and it wasn’t long before Fruhmorgen began listing Clemson as his leader. Clemson added his commitment in early April when he chose to the Tigers over Florida and Michigan, among others.

Quick Analysis. Listed at 6-foot-5, Fruhmorgen weighs in the 280s, so he’ll need to gain some weight once he arrives to Clemson. That shouldn’t be an issue because Fruhmorgen has the frame that will carry over 300 pounds without much issue. The U.S. Army All-American played both left and right tackle in high school, but he could end up on the right-side at Clemson. Fruhmorgen has the length and feet to play left tackle, but also has the size and run-blocking ability to play on the right-side.

This Spring. The graduation of Kalon Davis will leave behind an opening at right tackle. There are plenty of options for his replacement, but, aside from Joe Gore, most of them are young and inexperienced. Fruhmorgen and Noah Green will push for time, so could Justin Falcinelli and Maverick Morris.
