Robert Reese Joins the Tigers at Practice

by -

Clemson, SC-Clemson had its third two-a-day practice session of the
week on Friday. The Tigers worked in shoulder pads and shorts for
three hours in the morning and in shorts and helmets for an hour in
the afternoon. Head Coach Tommy Bowden was pleased with the
performance of his team in the summer heat.

"We finally got some hot weather," said Bowden. "I would
like as many hot days as possible during the preseason. We want to
simulate the conditions we will see when he play Georgia at 12 noon
on August 30. I have been pleased with the conditioning and the
performance of the team so far. That was the case today, they
practiced for three hours in the heat in the morning then did
conditioning after that. In the afternoon we worked primarily on

There was one addition to the Clemson squad on Friday.
Freshman Robert Reese, a defensive back from Temple, GA was approved
by the NCAA Clearinghouse and joined the team for the afternoon
practice. Reese must go through the five-day acclimatization period
before he can join the team for full practice in full gear. It gave
Bowden a perfect 18-18 attendance for the new players he expected at
the end of spring practice and 18-19 from his original signing class.

"Robert will have to watch from the sideline and do
conditioning for the first five days. He will be able to see what we
do from an assignment standpoint, but he is behind the others. Once
he gets into practice we will be able to evaluate his technique and
see if he will be able to help us in the secondary this year."

Todd McClinton and Donnell Clark continued to miss practice
due to injury. Roscoe Crosby has not joined the squad and Bowden
hopes he will be at practice as soon as possible.

Clemson will hold a scrimmage in Death Valley on Saturday
afternoon that will be closed to the public and the media.
