Former Clemson DT Darnell Jefferies commits for transfer to Minnesota


by -

Redshirt junior defensive tackle Darnell Jefferies announced he is headed to the Big Ten with Minnesota on Monday.

"I am blessed and excited to announce that I will be committing to the University of Minnesota," Jefferies said.

He was rated as high as a 4-star prospect out of Covington, Georgia but saw action in only five games this season, tallying one tackle in 24 snaps.

Jefferies follows a path that another recent Clemson defensive tackle took after Nyles Pinckney transferred there last season. Pinckney totaled 29 tackles, 3.5 for loss, with 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble over 13 games with the Golden Gophers last season.

Jefferies entered 2021 with 21 tackles (one for loss) and a half-sack in 169 career snaps over 23 games.
