Playing time breakdown: Absences mean opportunity down Clemson's roster vs. La Tech
|Monday, September 19, 2022, 9:55 AM- -|
Clemson's defense was missing six starters from the week's depth chart for the bulk of the game versus La Tech.
That meant some opportunity down the roster, particularly on the D-line and in the secondary, with bigger snap totals for Payton Page (23) and DeMonte Capehart (17) on the line and particularly freshman corners Toriano Pride (48) and Jeadyn Lukus (28).
The 48-20 win also provided several (season or career) debuts on either side of the ball including running back Keith Adams Jr., lineman Dietrick Pennington, quarterback Hunter Johnson, wide receiver Adam Randall, tight end Josh Sapp, lineman John Williams and linebacker TJ Dudley.
Among the more noteworthy snap areas is receiver currently with Randall in the mix and Antonio Williams emerging, where Randall was in on 18 plays, Antonio Williams was third overall in snaps (33), three-game starter Brannon Spector was down to 19 and former high 4-star prospect EJ Williams saw 14 plays.
