CLEMSON - Clemson starting linebacker Antonio Clay will not be in
school for the spring semester of 2007, but is expected to return to
the university in the summer. Clemson Head Coach Tommy Bowden made
the announcement on Monday.

"Antonio has some family issues to deal with and will be at
home this semester," said Bowden. "He has our complete support and
we look forward to his return to Clemson this summer."

In early September Clay's sister lost her life in an
automobile accident near his hometown of Jeffersonville, GA.

Clay was the third leading tackler on Clemson's defense that
ranked in the top 16 in the nation in total defense and scoring
defense. He had 95 tackles for the season, including 9.5 tackles for
loss.

He started 11 of the 13 games as a sophomore. He led the
Tigers in tackles in the victory over 13th ranked Georgia Tech on
October 21 with 13 and was named the ACC Defensive Lineman of the
Week.
