CLEMSON - Clemson reserve running back Demerick Chancellor has
informed Clemson head coach Tommy Bowden that he plans to transfer
to another school.

Chancellor was the third leading rusher on Clemson's fifth ranked rushing offense with 276 yards on 45 attempts
this year. He had a pair of 100-yard rushing games and averaged 6.1 yards per carry.

"I tried to convince Demerick to stay at Clemson," said Head
Coach Tommy Bowden. "He is an outstanding player who was very
productive when we was on the field this year. His decision to leave
is about playing time. We certainly wish him well. Some school is
going to get an outstanding back."

Chancellor was a reserve behind James Davis and C.J. Spiller,
who combined for 2048 rushing yards this year, second most in the
nation by a running back combination.

Chancellor was a red-shirt freshman for the Tigers this year.
The native of Miramar, FL had 11 carries for 113 yards against
Louisiana Tech and 21-114 against Temple for his top performances.
He suffered a shoulder injury late in the season and did not appear
in the last four games.

Chris Chancellor, Demerick's brother, is a freshman defensive
back on the Clemson team. Chris is 10th on the team in tackles this
year with 35. He said after practice Saturday that he will remaining
at Clemson.
