are starting to come on for the Tigers at the tackle spot.

“The guy I am really, really pleased with is Gifford Timothy,” said Dabo Swinney on Wednesday. “I’m very, very encouraged with where he is. It’s just one of those reminders again when you coach. He wasn’t very good as a redshirt guy. He wasn’t very good last year as a redshirt freshman. Now all of sudden you are hitting that third year and the maturity and the confidence and the change of his body with the weight room and conditioning and all that stuff. He has been very consistent.“

Offensive coordinator Chad Morris echoed those comments.

"I didn’t know if he had the drive or desire to do it,” said Morris. “He doesn’t talk a whole lot. I didn't know if he didn't like me or didn’t care. If you don’t talk, I need you to be mean or physical. He wasn’t either of those. We really challenged him coming into spring ball this year. I think he saw this was his opportunity. Of all of them up front this spring he has come the furtherest and he has been the most consistent.”

Redshirt freshman Joe Gore has also looked good according to Swinney and Morris.

“Joe Gore is pushing him,” said Morris. “Joe is as athletic as anybody we've got."

“We are starting to develop some flexibility at the tackle position,” said Swinney.
