Teammate of No. 1 recruit transfers from Miss. St. to Clemson

Though Grayson High School (GA) quarterback Nick Schuessler signed with and eventually enrolled early at Mississippi State this year, he’ll be going to Clemson instead.

Schuessler decided to leave Starkville last week, just a few weeks after enrolling in summer school, to play closer to home, and potentially, with his former high school teammates. Grayson running back Wayne Gallman, defensive back David Kamara and No. 1 recruit Robert Nkemdiche have all verbally committed to the Tigers for the class of 2013.

“Well, of course, Robert, David and Wayne all played a special role in me deciding to go to Clemson – they are family to me and I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to get to play with them again,” Schuessler told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Schuessler, a two-star recruit from 2012, will join Clemson as a preferred walk-on and could report to the school in time for fall camp.

“The way my release [from Mississippi State] is, I’m not allowed to have financial aid for like the first semester or something like that, so yes I will be a preferred walk-on until I earn my scholarship,” Schuessler said.

    I don’t think Dan Mullen is going to lose any sleep over this one. This kid only had offers from CSU and MTSU but its a smart move by Dabo.

    Don’t know a whole lot about Clemson (I’m an alum of USC Trojans, not Cocks), but they seem to be putting together an interesting team. Sammy Watkins was exciting last year and now you got RobertNkemdiche. I’ve also heard that going to a Clemson home game is an amazing and loud atmosphere…its now on my bucket list

    They also pay all of their players top dollar to go there. It’s a no brainer.

    Good. NCAA exploits players enough. Players should be compensated for being denied the right to seek employment

    You must have misread where Nick is headed.

    He isn’t going to the most corrupt program and coach in the NCAA despite the tens thousands Spurrier offered “out of his own pocket” to become a Jailcock. Only team in the NCAA to be placed on probation for the second time in seven years and retaining a coach that is a registered sexual offender. Way to be classy South Carolina Shamecocks!

    BTW Nick, I hope you can play DB, because Clemson is absolutely loaded at QB. In fact, even though Boyd isn’t the best, the group is the deepest in the Southeast.

    Does Clemson play West Virginia this season?
