Sociology major at Clemson.

Missed a game and a half in 2008 with a hamstring injury.

Spiller, while considered a starting back, shared most of the carries at Clemson with RB James Davis (now with the Cleveland Browns). Spiller is a smaller, shifty back that is better running outside the tackles and can be heavily involved in the passing game. A great return man with break-away speed.
