Clemson DT moving to offensive line

by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney spoke to the media on Monday afternoon and had an update about redshirt freshman defensive tackle Gage Cervenka.

"Cervenka moved over to OL and he is excited about that and so am I," Swinney said. "His decision to make the move and he came to me yesterday afternoon and wanted to meet with me. We talked through it and that is what he decided to do. I think that is the right move for him long-term. We will try to work with him and teach him how to play center and guard. We will start that process today."

The former high school wrestler knows a thing or two about leverage because he won the S.C. Wrestling Championship for the heavyweight division four straight years.

Swinney also said on Monday afternoon that center Jay Guillermo has had a concussion but will be fine for the Auburn game.
