Tavaughn Monts has been denied his final year of eligibility. In speaking with Monts, he knew his case was going to be a long shot, but he desperately wanted the chance to play one more year in the Clemson uniform.


Monts was informed as early as the end of the season that his case would likely be denied. Nevertheless, Monts put out a tremendous effort in the spring. He was scheduled to back up CJ Gaddis at cat safety, that role will likely fall now to Roy Walker.


This decision makes an even stronger case for NCAA to pass the five years to play five. Monts lost a year of eligibility over playing minimal snaps in one game. The rule will likely come up again in July. It lost steam last year, but will be up for discussion once again this year. There is several cases each year just like Monts. The rule would not only help the players on the field, but it would help with graduation as players would be more likely to stay on campus and graduate.
