CLEMSON -- According to Clemson signee Tymere Zimmerman and his high school coach Dean Boyd, Zimmerman has cleared every hurdle to gain entrance into Clemson and will appear on the football field next week. A core class that Zimmerman took in high school was flagged by both Clemson and the NCAA clearing house. However, that class has been cleared, and the official word should come Tuesday when the clearing house meets.


"It seems like it has taken forever, and I am glad it’s over," said Zimmerman. "I am already behind two weeks so I can’t hold anything back. I’m coming to play. I’m not coming for a redshirt. I'm coming to get a position."


Zimmerman, who graduated from Marlboro County High School in Bennettsville, SC, in June 2001, played last season at Fork Union Prep School. He originally committed to Clemson in the fall of 1999. Because he played last season at a prep school, Zimmerman will have four years of eligibility remaining with Clemson.
