Belk releases statement on his transfer

Clemson freshman defensive tackle Josh Belk has announced that he will transfer.

"I will be transferring from Clemson University," Belk posted on Wednesday. "I appreciate the Clemson staff, fans and Coaching staff. Thanks to Coach Swinney for the opportunity. Nothing bad to say about the University and my time there. Just feel that it’s the best decision for my family and I." #GodsPlan

Belk also posted a prepared statement from Gaston, Marion, and Stubbs, P.A.

"Josh Belk has been released from Clemson University and the Clemson University Football program upon request made by Josh Belk to Coach Dabo Swinney and the Clemson Tiger Football program. Circumstances of Mr Belk's life have led him to request a full, unconditional release from Coach Swinney that was graciously granted by coach Coach Swinney and the (University) in a timely manner. Mr. Belk thanks Clemson University, Coach Dabo Swinney and the entire Clemson Tiger fan base for their support in his life-altering decision. Mr. Belk requests that he and his family be given privacy at this time to explore decisions related to the next chapter of his life. Thank you and God bless."

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney commented on the transfer through a school news release.

“Josh is a good young man from a great family,” said Swinney. “Sometimes circumstances change, as is the case with Josh. We are disappointed he is leaving, but I enjoyed being around him the past few months. He did everything that was asked of him and had an excellent semester academically. I wish him all the best in the years to come.”

Belk finished an All-State campaign at Lewisville (S.C.) with 116 tackles, 34 for loss, with 11 sacks and seven caused fumbles as a senior.

As of now, Clemson will have only three scholarship defensive tackles projected to return for the 2019 season (Jordan Williams, Darnell Jefferies, Nyles Pinckney).
