Clemson coach Dabo Swinney answered questions from the local media during his Tuesday press conference and talked about Clemson linebacker hybrid Travis Blanks' playing status for next year with his final year of eligibility.

"The only other one (Zac Brooks leaving) is Travis Blanks," Swinney said. "He has not made up his mind yet (on returning for another season) but he is graduating in December."

Travis Blanks will be recognized on Senior Day on Saturday against Wake Forest even though he hasn't made a decision on next year.

He has 31 tackles and a sack on the season.

Swinney said all he ever wants from his players is to "just graduate." "They don't owe us a fifth year."
