football program. McKissic is the 26th member of Tommy Bowden's
sixth class of signees.
McKissic played for Spence McCracken at Opelika High School
in Alabama. He was a teammate of Clemson 2004 signee Adrian
Kindred. McKissic had 43 tackles, eight sacks and an interception
last year as the starting nose guard on a defense that allowed just
37 points in 12 games. It was his second season as a starter for

a two-star prospect by rivals.com. He is one of four signees in this
Clemson class from the state of Alabama.
"We are very pleased that Jacquez has signed with Clemson,"
said head coach Tommy Bowden. "It was worth the wait. He is an
athletic defensive lineman, an area we needed to fill with this new
class. We are happy with the quality of linemen who will be joining
us next year and Jacquez's signing makes the group even stronger."
