Early enrollee

Brings to Clemson: Linthicum, a former teammate of Bryan Bresee, is rated as high as the No. 1 center in the 2021 class. Here’s how 247Sports analyzed his play during the recruiting process: “Powerful body with sturdy frame. Played lacrosse growing up. Quick feet and athletic. Very good knee bend. Explodes at the snap and plays low. Fast, accurate, powerful hands. Drives legs once engaged. Overpowers opponents time and again. Flexible in upper body. Gets to second level well.”

Depth chart fit: Graduate Cade Stewart has played the lion’s share of snaps this season and there’s opportunity there for Linthicum to step in, whether next year in a big role or platooning if Stewart were to decide to come back.

Robbie Caldwell on Linthicum: "He's the first natural center we've had in a while. Very physical...Man, we're excited. He's going to bring a toughness and physical attitude we're all going to enjoy."
