CLEMSON, S.C. – Michael Cheeks and Ishmael Kamara have joined the men’s track & field team, announced Wednesday. Both athletes will kick off their first semester at Clemson today, and will be able to compete with the team for the 2014-15 track seasons.

Kamara is a sophomore transfer from Coastal Carolina, where he competed in the 100-meter dash, long jump and triple jump.

At Auburn, Cheeks qualified for the 2014 NCAA East Preliminaries after posting a best of 20.82 in the 200 dash. He attended Mill Creek High School in Georgia, where he was a state champion in the highest classification of the 200.
