Paws and Reflect Episode #2

Posted: June 16, 2010 by El Swann in Clemson, Football, Paws and Reflect, Xbox

In this week’s episode we take a look at the new NCAA 2011 game by EA Sports. This year the game includes team entrances into their stadiums. This has been an area that Clemson fans have wanted added for years. That’s right Tiger fans, you get to see the team run down the hill.

I thought the game play was slightly improved over last years game. Fortunately, Clemson was selected to be a featured team on the demo. Check out the attached video for an exclusive look at the Tiger’s entrance.

Some things just have to be shared. Even though this isn’t really Clemson related, I thought many of you would enjoy it. I wouldn’t mind seeing some C.J. Spiller plays in Lego form. I guess these guys have plenty of time on their hands.

Conference expansion is at a peak right now. It appears we are only moments from the fallout of Colorado leaving the Big 12 for the PAC-10. I am guessing this thing is about to take off. It sort of feels like Christmas as we wait for the dominoes to fall. It will be very interesting to say the least.

Low Country Recruit Headed To Clemson

Evan McKelvey

Berkeley High School

Height: 6-1 Weight: 185

Senior Season: 5 INT, 142 Tackles, 8 PBU

40 Yard Dash: 4.52 – Top 5 in state in 110 hurdles

Tall, rangy kid that covers the field sideline to sideline. Biggest plus is he plays very downhill. While he covers the entire field passing – wise, his ability to support the run is what separates him from the rest. He has a unique, natural ability to make tackles. He is definitely not afraid of contact. He has great insticts and football knowledge. I can see him fitting in well at free safety down the road.

Even though he weighs 185lbs, he may be too thin to make an early impact. He has some maturing to do physically, and once he gets on a workout program and meal plan, he will gain the necessary weight. In my opinion, he will need a red shirt year to add the needed weight to play at this level.

He is the third brother that will play at the collegiate level and has tremendous potential. McKelvey will most likely enroll in August, but could have to enroll later. At this point, McKelvey could end up being a nice late acquisition for the Clemson Tigers. I will update you later once everything is finalized.
