N.C. DE Joe Gore commits to Clemson

Joe Gore, 6'6" 262lb OT/DE from Lake Waccamaw NC committed to Clemson today during his stay at summer camp. He has offers from NC State, Maryland, Texas Tech, SC, Virginia Tech and Duke amongst a reported 37 offers. NC State was really the other school in it for this guy.

He was recruited by Dan Brooks and could play either DL or OT for us, but given his weight is likely slotted for DE first. I would put him there. He would definitely have to redshirt to play on the OL. Tigerillustrated's two articles are contradictory on which he's being recruited to play.

This is a guy who has blown up during the recent Spring Evaluation Period, but theres so little film that its hard to get a good read on why. I think his explosiveness is a main factor, though he will need to work on keeping his pads lower (always a problem for a tall guy). He did have 12 sacks, runs a 4.7 40 and should easily qualify.

Scout rates him at 3-stars as the #46 OT, and Rivals ratings are not finished yet.
