Amari Rodgers says Ajou Ajou is on verge of breakout: "He's a monster"

Amari Rodgers knows a little bit about playing wide receiver in college, so he was asked last week who he thought would be the Tigers’ breakout receiver this season. Rodgers didn’t hesitate in naming Ajou Ajou, the raw physical specimen who is still learning to play wide receiver. Full Story »

Listen to Coach Elliot. This guy has raw talent but requires a lot of work to be consistent. All of us know you don't spend a lot of time on the field during game time if you are not consistent in practice.

Interesting comments from Elliott at the end of the article...

Sounds like Ajou isn’t quite All In with everything yet....but he is in the right place to continue to grow and mature.

His size makes me think

he might make an effective tight end. He may not be able to block, but a speedy athletic tight end sounds like a great offensive weapon.

I was thinking a slightly shorter Kelvin Benjamin. Keep him at WR. A big body WR becomes very difficult for a corner to cover and/or tackle

There is certainly a place on the field for fast TEs who can't block.

It's called wide receiver.

But honestly it doesn't matter what position they say he plays, they will try to move him around and get him matched up on LBs and safeties in the passing game in the same way a coach tries to set plays for TEs sometimes.

If he reaches his full potential Ajou should fit perfectly into the category of faster than the guys as strong as him and stronger than the guys as fast as him. That makes for a dangerous player.

Ajou has the ability to be a high 1st round draft pick if he continues to work on it. I love this kid’s athleticism, he’s an incredible dancer and that takes dedication & hard work. I believe he will put it all together on a level even Dabo never expected.

He’ll be thankful he came to Clemson because Dabo loves to develop & disciple young people into great men, fathers and leaders.

Tony wants perfection too, a sign of a great coach.

My memory fails me, but wasn't Ajou a basketball player in Canada, and he didn't start playing FB until late in his HS career, like maybe his junior, or senior HS days. IMO, for a kids that didn't grow up playing American rules FB, he has come a long way in his short FB career!!!

I’m happy for (Ajou)^2 but FrancisMarion is always on the verge of a breakout.

Where is the love for him?

Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Don’t wanna melt any snowflakes.

I got the impression after Ajou committed last year

he has a lot of growing up to do.

If he resolves the maturity issue, the future is very bright.

Sounds like his off-the-field issues are holding him back

wonder what those are... TE says "not being on time" and "not taking care of your body"

hopefully things he can correct quickly.

That sounds like a good enough reason huh, I mean that maybe he loves eating Doritos a little more than practicing FB lol!!! ;)

That was the big difference this year after they figured how to stop ETN and then we kept running the same plays . We didn’t have that dominant WR to take over vs teams like Ohio St or Bama .
Couldn’t spread the D, yeah we got some yards vs the Bucknuts but they didn’t give up the big plays .

He should be a running back and punish...

who ever we play. His touchdown run was impressive and he can catch balls out of the backfield.

I certainly ain't a coach but his has demonstrated that "I'll kick your azzz" mentality once he has the ball.

If he gets his head on straight he will be a huge plus for our offense.

I'm excited but TE's comments are a little concerning.

Great compliments from Amari and Dabo but

the ones from TE are insightful. Doesn’t sound like anyone is concerned about his ability and athleticism however work towards discipline is needed. This article, in itself, shines a beam of light into what this program is teaching their players. No wonder the success is at the level it is.

And...... All the best for Ajou Ajou!

Go Tigers!

My first thought, immediately when I saw that run was

"Alshon Jeffrey". Not wishing any sort of Cootness on Ajou Ajou, but that slightly ungainly, yet ground covering stride mimics Jeffrey almost to a "T". I would say Jeffrey has had a lucrative NFL career, having overcome being a Coot. :)

Nothing wrong with that comparison. He's one heck of a baller. A good guy too. Maybe not this year but with those dancing skills, if he can get that route running perfection down, he'd be great in the slot. In fact, no reason not to be able to move all over the field. Exciting stuff.
