Former Clemson cornerback Derion Kendrick may see his former teammates in his first action for another team at the college level.

After getting out of Dabo's Love Shack, then dismissed from the team, then the gun and reefer, I figured he was on the highway to hell! The likely Power 5 landing spots for his obvious talent were USC and UGA; where he could continue criminal mischief and getting some more different baby mamas.

He has to reform himself, and if he could not do it with Dabo at Clemson, UGA could be his last stop before the pen. Could easily end up like another former Clemson student Skip Wise, both were extremely talented.
I doubt seriously we will see him September 4th, unless he is returning punts or something.
We should all wish him good luck in life.

The dude was clearly upset about being kicked off the team, I'll cut the dude some slack there. The reasons he was kicked off the team in the first place are probably of more concern.

Why are most tiger fans worried about this guy. He is a great player, but Tony Elliott will us his familiarity to show strawberry and serve vanilla! Being familiar only helps for prep.

Georgia’s biggest weakness was going to be their secondary, given who all they lost.

Then they bring in the best CB and safety prospects out of the transfer portal.

Our defense has to play out of their minds. Because points are going to be hard to come by in this game.

I hope (and believe) they are stupid enough to believe BV will not have necessary adjustments in our signals, alignments, strategy, etc., perfected by then. I think Kirby is of that mental midget mold, and I just hope his assistants are as well. Hopefully, he has supplied his staff with that type guys.

DK missed a bunch of games last year but still made 1st team All-ACC for a legitimate reason.

He's got elite-level talent & athleticism. I hate we couldn't help him find more discipline here at Clemson but fingers crossed this last mistake was a wake-up call & he makes better choices at UGA.

Make no mistake, though, this is a big get for UGA & will make the toughest defense on the schedule even more competitive.

Pretty much everyone looked outclassed against OSU last year, that was a clunker.

DK also got burned on a couple perfect throws against elite receivers in that game. I still wish we had him, definitely salty that he’s going to UGA.

Plus seeing that Gilbert is transferring there... ugh.

As much as I wish the portal wasn’t the new reality, it is, and ultimately we are going to have to embrace it to compete with the Bama’s, UGA’s, and OSU’s...

Our recruiting is great, we have a strong culture and not taking transfers probably helps us recruit, but to sacrifice bringing in strong talent through the portal it unfortunately makes the recruiting feel a little less impressive...

Sure saw enough of that in spots the last two years. I thought Booth was better last year and Jones has more upside. DK has tools, but it just didnt look natural for him back there, didnt see that instinctual play rather than reacting. If he was smart he would have transferred to play for Deon. Deon would have A) Given him top level DB teaching, and B) been a hype machine for his rehabilitation. Just my .02 cents but what eva.

Re: Now that he is a Dawg....

That's part of the equation. Clemson coaches took DK's NFL career opportunity when he was "volunteered" to play DB. He's a WR and hopefully we will light him up. The joke after the game will be Dabo outsmarted Kirby by planting DK out there in the player's pool.

It’s funny how there are so many media types that brutalize Swinney and why? Because he doesn’t allow these kids to act a certain way? Because he demands you be a good citizen? Honestly everyone deserves second chances but look at the issues players who play for Kirby smart and jumbo Fischer and nick Saban have compared to Swinney. Here’s a perfect example. No way would Clemson sign this kid out of the portal even if they were in desperate need. But sadly some teams put winning before all else and that’s why college athletics has issues. We allow these young men to do whatever they want and basically get away with it. As long as they can play. He will hurt UGA more than help. I only hope that the young man looks at himself and changes his ways and becomes the young man Clemson though and wanted him to be.

This may be an unpopular opinion, but I’m ok he’s gone. I don’t recall the game, but watched him come off the field in BV’s face and vice versa.

When I saw the disciplinary issues, I hoped it was because he was a fiery competitor. I hoped his switch to dB would lead to a Desmond Howard type career. Turns out DK is just another Pac-Man Jones type. He should have been kicked to the curb like Chad Kelly was at the first sign of issues. Enjoy your ride to the bottom DK!

Here's how this will go down ...

[1]
May 30, 2021, 4:12 PM

DK will give Kirby Smart and UGA DC hours and hours of intel on the Clemson Offense, signals and play calls which will affect the game.

Kirby will send Kendrick down the road quickly after Clemson game. I said in an earlier post this is an NFL move. We know Dabo would not be picking up UGA or any players with drug and gun arrests, and it makes a big statement about the class of the respective coaches and football programs, and just how desperate Kirby Smart has become.

2022 purple level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg flag link

It’s a brilliant move by UGA...


Jun 1, 2021, 11:43 AM

I’m sure DK is being compensated well for his intel. I think he will stay on the team but they mainly got him for info.

I also think he threw the OSU game for some financial gain.

And yes he will ball out during the Clemson game. He has an axe to grind, and he has played against our receivers for 2 years in practice. He has the talent to be good when he chooses.

Just another hurdle to have to go over for the opener against a team that we are better than but don’t need the added obstacle.

Re: Here's how this will go down ...

Jun 1, 2021, 12:07 PM

Everyone keeps saying this, but honestly, what can a former player tell a new team about his old team that wouldn't be obvious from film? BV has been coaching for a long time now, his schemes, and types of plays he calls isn't exactly a secret. Teams change up signals several times during a season because they know other teams can easily pick up on those types of things otherwise.

If it were as easy to give up a bunch of key information by picking up a former player then you'd see coaches completely change everything they do each time they lose an assistant coach.

flag link

Good point


Jun 1, 2021, 6:08 PM

I think you're kinda spot-on here.

We saw it from Notre Dame last year, for example; they schemed deliberately and extremely specifically for BV in the most-watched ACC game of all time... and they won the game. Mixed reads, on-field huddles, fast breaks, they all played a part in the victory.

Frankly I'm not sure why they didn't do more of that the second time around (really they kinda did none of it that time), but now we're talking defense vs. offense. Bottom line, you gotta be really good AND make some deliberate changes just to stand a chance against a BV-led team, particularly one with as much talent as Clemson has this year. Fundamentals are often extremely determinant in week one.
