Mickey Plyler on Cumbie: "Cumbie has a huge body and great frame but is very athletic and runs well. Anytime you can beat Notre dame it is a big deal especially now that Notre Dame is back. He is a great kid that reminds you of some the kids Danny Ford signed like Vance Hammonds."
Reminds Plyler of: Vance Hammonds
Cumbie on Clemson: "The major factor is that I would be most comfortable at Clemson. It was between Clemson and Notre Dame. I visited both and Notre Dame had a nice campus but it wasn't a good fit for me. I grew up a Tiger fan and I felt at home with Clemson."
