Dexter Lawrence suspension update

Dexter Lawrence suspension update


by -

A Clemson spokesman told TigerNet on Wednesday that Clemson is still looking at all options for an appeal for the three Clemson players that failed an NCAA drug tests for a banned substance called Ostarine. Clemson hopes to have an update later this week.

TigerNet is hearing that the NCAA has told Clemson it has to prove that the student-athletes unknowingly took the substance - either it was given by the school or the player had no idea.

All-American defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence, as well as tight end Braden Galloway and offensive lineman Zach Giella currently remain suspended for the national title game and are facing the loss of one season of eligibility.

"Obviously, this is hard on him. I'm not going to sit up here and lie to you and say it's not hard on him," Clelin Ferrell said about Lawrence on Wednesday. "He's a very positive person. He's at practice every day, making sure everyone goes through and gets their reads right. He's being a leader. That's all you can ask from him."
