Freshman Men’s Class at Clemson Ranked No. 10 by Track & Field News

Dec. 5, 2008

Clemson, SC – The men’s track & field freshman class has been ranked #10 in the nation, according to the January issue of Track & Field News. Florida has the publication’s #1 freshman class, followed by Oklahoma State, Stanford, LSU, and Southern Cal.

Clemson welcomes just six scholarship newcomers on the men’s side, but several are expected to be impact performers for first-year coach Lawrence Johnson. Leading the way is Spencer Adams, a two-sport athlete who red-shirted this fall as a member of the Tiger football team. Adams suffered an ACL injury in the fall and his status for the upcoming track season is unknown at this point. Adams was a three-time national champion in the hurdles as a high school senior in Charlotte, NC.

Justin Murdock also entered Clemson as a highly-coveted prospect. The native of Pasadena, MD was a USA Junior All-American in the summer and earned five All-America honors in high school as a sprinter.

Daniel Inge and Andrew Kahl are the top freshmen in the field events for the Tigers. Inge cleared 16’5″ in the pole vault in high school and was a Nike Indoor All-American as a senior. Kahl cleared 6’11.25″ in the high jump last year and was a three-time All-American in the event.

The indoor track & field season gets started for the Tigers on January 9-10 with the Clemson Invitational.
