Local lineman on Clemson's radar

Honea Path (S.C.) BHP defensive tackle Tysheik Galloway hasn’t yet hauled in his first offer but is on the radar of D-I programs including Clemson.

Clemson defensive line coach Todd Bates and the Tigers got a good look at him last month when he competed during all three days of the Dabo Swinney Camp’s first session.

“He told me I was doing good,” Galloway said of Bates. “All of the coaches that were working with the DL told me that they liked my speed, hands and athletic abilities.”

Galloway (6-2, 290) was named an honorable mention All-Area performer as a sophomore last season after posting 39 tackles, three sacks and two pass breakups.

Duke, North Carolina, Northwestern, Notre Dame, South Carolina and Wake Forest have also shown early interest according to Galloway, who camped at South Carolina in June as well.

One of the highlights of Clemson’s camp for Galloway was working with defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence.

“I liked that I was able to be coached by my favorite college player, Dexter Lawrence,” he said. “And being coached by coach Bates was a great experience also. He also showed me a few more moves to add to my arsenal.”

Galloway, who lives less than an hour away from Clemson, hopes to get more attention from the Tigers as the evaluation process moves forward.

“The relationship that the coaches have with their players (stands out),” Galloway said. “It’s just a great family atmosphere.”
