Clemson quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei has big shoes to fill.
After three years of Trevor Lawrence running the Tigers’ offense, it’s Uiagalalelei’s turn to take the reins, but when asked about any comparisons to his predecessor following practice Monday evening, Uiagalelei brushed them off.
Defensive end Tomiwa Durojaiye (6-5, 255) of Middletown, Del., a teammate of South Carolina quarterback commitment Braden Davis, had planned to announce his college commitment this past Saturday from the Gamecocks, Kentucky, West Virginia, Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt.
Before Clemson donned helmets and shorts for its first practice of the fall on Friday afternoon, head coach Dabo Swinney noted he was opening his 40th football season as a player or coach. But for him, the feeling never “never gets old.”
In less than a month, Clemson will take the field against Georgia at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C., to kick off the season, and today marks another major milestone as the season draws near.
