Clemson fans and Wake Forest QB get quick look at Bryan Bresee


WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Clemson fans didn’t have to wait long to get a close-up look at heralded recruit Bryan Bresee.

Bresee, a freshman defensive tackle, was credited with half a sack on Wake Forest’s first possession of the game, joining linebacker Baylon Spector in corralling Hartman for a seven-yard loss.

Bresee, a 6-foot-5, 300-pounder, also blocked a Wake Forest field goal attempt in the first quarter.

“I’m excited for him,” Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables said. “He’s like a big puppy dog – a big Labrador, you let him outside for the first time, bring him home for the first time and he’s wetting all over the place. He was great. He’s strong and athletic.

“Bryan has done well and the older guys have helped him do well. He did some of the same things tonight that he’s done since he got here last spring.”

“Sometimes it not as easy to come in and play to your potential early, because there’s so much to learn,” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. “But, once you get it, you’ve got a chance to be special. I’ve seen that with many guys, but Bryan’s unique in that he was able to make the adjustment.

“You’re not gonna see many young defensive tackles that can move like that, have his size and natural strength and athleticism, the violence, all those things that he brings to the positon. His ability to process and make the adjustments from a scheme standpoint have been impressive. He was able to come in January and had a lot to learn, but he put the work in. He’s a big energy guy and he’s gonna bring a lot to our defense, for sure.”
