Since 2006, Clemson has started 7, 5, 5, 5, 2, 4, 3, 5, 5, 3, 6 , 6....This year is up to 8 Pretty impressive when you consider there were only 3 White Starters just three years ago. Quality depth noted w last years write up on defense has come to fruition . Clemson has definitely bucked the National(& Southern) trend...esp with the number white defenders on Scholarship over the past few years. Led by generational talent QB Trevor Lawrence (Soph. 6'-6" 220) took over in the middle of last season as a True Freshman & never looked back. Without him the don't win National Championship! Clemson has an an excellent Walk-on program going with some potential players under the radar. Coach Dabo Swinney being a ex walk-on WR in college at Alabama has helped this. (It's actually translating to the entire roster as far as scholarship players are concerned.) >>> Ex Walk-on WR's include.... Tyler Grisham (cut by Steelers); Adam Humphries (Bucs/Titans); Hunter Renfrow (Raiders). That's one thing this year's team lacks..no white WR's on 2 Deep...but there are still some young players coming down the pipeline. 2 Deep...QB Chase Brice; TE Luke Price Watch for ...WR Brannon Spector(Fr.) ; TE Davis Allen (Fr.) WR Will Swinney (Walk-on) ; WR Tye Herbstreit(Fr.) (Preferred Walk-on) & several others OFFENSE (4) QB- Trevor Lawrence TE - JC Chalk C - Sean Pollard RG - Gage Cervenka DEFENSE (4) DE - Logan Rudolph MLB - Jaime Skalski WLB - Chad Smith FS - Tanner Muse (Sr. 6'-2" 230) 1st Team pre-season All ACC 2 Deep...FS Nolan Turner (Dad Kevin played FB NFL); MLB Jake Venables ; WLB Baylon Spector Others to watch ...LB Kane Patterson (Fr.); LB Kieth McGuire (Fr.) ;DE Logan Cash (Fr.); CB Jake Herbstreit (Fr. / Preferred Walk-on) FS Nolan Turner is almost like another starter...playmaker is on the field plenty * Class of 2020 is reloading with the Best D-Lineman in the Nation...Brian Bresee (possibly another JJ Watt?) & DB Tyler Venables so far.
