Thomas Austin - Offensive Line Copy Embed Code
Height: 6-4   Weight: 285   Hometown: Camden, SC (Camden HS)   Class: 2005

Thomas Austin has been preparing for the Shrine Bowl this week. He was informed that he would be playing a new position when he arrived at the Shrine Bowl.

"Last year, I was an offensive guard and center. When I got here, they told me I will be playing tackle. I had never played tackle before. The coaches have been good with us, and it has been relatively easy for us to pick up."

Austin has been able to spend a lot of time this week with his fellow Clemson commitments.

"Barry Humphries has been my roommate. We plan on rooming together the next 5 years at Clemson, so that is relationship that will definitely be built. I have become close with several of the Clemson commitments."

Like most players the trip on Sunday to the hospital has really stood out for Austin.

"It was a very humbling experience. Signing autographs for these kids meant the world to them. What people may not realize is it means just as much if not more to the players."

South Carolina had been heavily pursuing Austin, but it has had no effect on Austin.

"I am firm to Clemson. Probably as firm as I have ever been to Clemson. Coach Rick Stockstill called me, but I will only take one official visit, and that is to Clemson. Coach Latina leaving, and Coach Hunt coming in will have no effect on me. I am coming to Clemson."

Austin has pushed his official visit back to January 29, due to a wrestling tournament. Austin is a defending state champion in wrestling.

"My visit is not going to change. We are trying to get Mike Davis, JC Neal and some of these other guys to change their ways and come to Clemson."
