Will Swinney to play for Tigers, hopes versatility can earn him a spot

Will Swinney has been a mainstay on Clemson’s sideline since his dad – head coach Dabo Swinney – took over in 2008, but next fall the younger Swinney won’t be wearing street clothes. He’ll be donning shoulder pads and an orange helmet. Full Story »



Hard to believe that kid is college age. That snuck up on

"Seth Ryan is leaving this year"

I was hoping he'd stay for his RS Senior year, but I understand that Seth probably will head to bigger and better things in coaching.

Judging the film he looks like he will contribute after a redshirt.
He's already putting some muscle on.

I'm impressed with his athleticism in his film.
Reminds me of Renfrow just saying.


Well, he certainly has had a close-up look at the perfect

prototype of Renfrow.

Hate to bust anyone's bubble but Will Swinney isn't anywhere close to as good as Renfrow. Renfrow will be in the league while Swinney will probably be a GA on Clemson's staff. Smart, strong, and great hands, but 5'9 is pushing it. He is 5'8 175 and probably runs a 4.7-4.8 40. Renfrow is 5'11 175 and is probably in the low 4.6s to 4.5s range. Will Swinney is like DRod's clone not Renfrow's.

This young man speaks with a maturity way beyond his years. I wish him well, but knowing his parents, he will play, if, and only if, he deserves it. That's what I like about Dabo. Believe me, we have had other coaches who didn't run the program that way, and we weren't very good in those days, either.

Beat me to it.

Agreed...if he averages more than 28 yds it would be an improvement.

Or just kick in general. Drives me crazy how they have a hard time kicking the ball in the endzone during kickoffs. Now, I do realize that a few times that was intentional but the majority of the times it was not. Even though it was not needed (obviously), Ohio State game was a prime example. There were more kickoff return yards than there were rushing or passing. Put the ball in the endzone, encourage a touch back and that don't happen.

I heard Dabo mention that Will was joining the team in a press conference on Tuesday morning and kept wondering why it was never announced.


Kid sounds like he has a good head on his shoulders

Not surprising considering the kind of role models he's had. Good luck, Mr Swinney. I hope to hear your name called often in the future.
