Jamel Hurst - Defensive Back Copy Embed Code
Height: 5-9   Weight: 175   Hometown: Raeford, NC (Hoke County HS)   Class: 2007

Clemson did very well in the secondary with four signees in 2006. The Tigers will look once again to sign 2-4 defensive backs in 2007. One player the staff has not offered, but they are looking at is Jamel Hurst.

Hurst is small, physical corner. Hurst led his team with 123 tackles last year, while playing cornerback. Hurst says he knows it is not good for business, when a cornerback leads the defense in tackles.

"It is not the best way to play defense. Our defense was not very good last year. I am very competitive and I want to make plays. If I can make a big hit and knock the ball loose or make a big interception, then I want to do it."

Hurst is receiving interest from North Carolina, North Carolina State, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, and Clemson. Hurst does not have any offers at this time, but he clearly wants an offer from Clemson.

"Clemson is my number one choice. If they offer, I would likely wind up at Clemson. They have been my favorite school all my life. It is a great school to get an education, and Coach Bowden is really putting together something special. Clemson has great tradition with the Hill and the Rock."

Hurst says he hopes to attend the spring game on April 8th in Death Valley.

"I want to get down there and see the coaches. Hopefully, I will have a chance to talk to them, and see where I stand."
