NCAA reverses Clemson uniform ruling

by -

CLEMSON - The Clemson University Athletic Department was informed late this afternoon that it will not have its number of preseason football practices reduced as the result of wearing a non-compliant uniform for its first two days of football practice (August 6-7).

Earlier today the school announced it would not have a second practice on Monday and Friday this week as the result of a ruling by the NCAA that it wore pads during its first two days of practice.

“The NCAA gave further review to this situation and informed us this afternoon that we can have the full complement of practices during the preseason,” Clemson Athletic Director Terry Don Phillips said Monday afternoon. “We are pleased with this decision.”

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said he was also glad the NCAA decided to change the ruling.

“We appreciate the NCAA taking a second look at our situation,” Swinney said. “We are very pleased with the decision and the timing of it. We have enough time to change our plans and have a full tempo practice this evening that will be a good preparation for our first scrimmage on Tuesday.”
