More on Staley: Staley committed to Clemson out of high school, but didn’t qualify. He became one of the top cornerbacks in junior college. He had 19 interceptions in two seasons. He considered USC and Nebraska. He should step into the defensive backfield right away. Was offered by Mississippi State, Florida, Georgia, UT, Florida State and LSU in addition to USC and Nebraska. Recruited by Rick Stockstill.
Quoting Staley: “They won’t let you fail. They support the idea of having you come there and your main purpose of coming there is to get a degree.”
“I always wanted to go (to Clemson). I feel good about going down to play at Clemson. I think I have that type of speed and ability to go down there and play. (At Georgia Military) I learned you can’t take anything for granted. You have to come out and play hard. Sometimes you are going to get beat, but you have to look over that and go to the next play. There are a lot of great players out there. You can’t just take it for granted you are the best player on the field. You have to practice hard every time you go and play hard on the field.”
