When Jamie Cumbie left the Notre Dame campus on Monday April 18, he likely finished the last campus…
Is Cumbie Clemson Bound?
Tennessee has thrown their hat in the ring for the Jamie Cumbie sweepstakes. Cumbie was playing a home baseball game yesterday in front of Vols assistant coach Greg Adkins. Cumbie can expect a Fed-Ex package with a scholarship offer from Phillip Fullmer today. We asked Cumbie if he has a leader and if he's come up with a definite time-table for his decision. "Clemson and Notre Dame are still my leaders," Cumbie said. "Tennessee, Purdue, Illinois and USC are the other schools that I'm still looking at. "I'm getting tired of the (recruiting) process. I'd like to get it over with soon but I'd like to take some visits before I do that. I want to make a decision before the start of football season. "I'm trying to find the time to take some visits. I'll be trying out for some baseball teams this summer and I'm hoping on visiting some schools this summer." The 6-foot-6, 255-pounder, from Morris is an intriguing prospect to say the least. College recruiters coming through Illinois feel Cumbie could project at several positions in college. One recruiter said that Cumbie reminds him a lot of Eric Winston (Miami). Winston was a high school tight end turned offensive lineman. The concensous among college coaches is that once Cumbie actually starts hitting the weights, he'll be at 280-300 pounds easily. Cumbie was very active as a junior. He had 70 solo tackles and six sacks. He averaged 25 yards per catch from his tight end position on a run orientated offense. Jamie Cumbie denies a leader but he told Scout.com back in January that Clemson was his dream school growing up. Can anyone overcome the Tigers strong grip? We'll have to wait and see.
