will transfer to another school. Anthony met with Tigers Head Coach Dabo Swinney on Thursday morning to discuss his decision.

“I have enjoyed my time at Clemson and appreciate the opportunity I’ve had,” said Anthony. “This is an outstanding program, but I wish to make a clean start at a program where I can hopefully be a starter. I want to thank all the Clemson coaches, my teammates and the Clemson family for their support. I will always be a Tiger.”

Anthony lettered in 2012 and 2013 and played in 17 games over those two years, five as a starter. He redshirted the 2011 season and was listed as a backup offensive tackle entering fall camp. The native of Williamston, S.C. played in 10 games last year for the Tigers’ 11-2 team that finished seventh in the final USA Today Coaches Poll.

“I appreciate the hard work Shaq has put into this program,” said Swinney. “Sometimes a player needs a change. I support his decision and will help him any way I can. I wish him nothing but the best.”

If you worked hard, could you start at RT for Clemson?***

You need to modify that. It's not because it looked
soccerkrzy®
OK...is that a bad reason to switch jobs?

The other wrinkle is you're still doing the same thing.

What if he actually isn't good enough to start at Clemson?
TheProdigal
That's an argument that can easily be turned on itself
SpillerHighLife®
Why speculate in the negative direction, unless
TheProdigal
I didn't call him a quitter.
SpillerHighLife®
Someone above did, wasn't referring to you only.
TheProdigal
Ok, dude, I guess we could do this all day...

Never said or hinted that you bashed Dabo.***

I'll give you an example of why that logic is flawed:
