Clemson safety to forgo senior season

Clemson safety Van Smith announced he will forego his senior season on social media, and it was confirmed by a Clemson University spokesman on Sunday afternoon.

"I just want to say thank you to Clemson University and community for all the support," Smith said in a tweet, "It has been a great three-year journey. The Day I committed Sept 1, 2015, I knew Clemson was the place that would help me grow into a man and not just a football player. Thanks to all the coaches that kept me going through my ups and downs. Again, I just want to say thank you to the coaches, Clemson Football, and the whole Clemson community."

The Charlotte native logged 49 tackles (1.5 for loss) with a pass breakup and an interception as a junior, starting 13 of 14 games.

Over the previous two seasons, including a second-team All-ACC campaign as a sophomore, Smith posted 130 tackles and three interceptions in 1,004 snaps over 29 games.
