Swinney thinks Wilkins could be the President one day
Swinney thinks Wilkins could be the President one day

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney held his weekly press conference on Tuesday and shared that defensive tackle Christian Wilkins and offensive lineman Taylor Hearn will be honored with the seniors as they run down the hill during Saturday's Senior Day.

Both juniors (football-wise) have not made a final decision on whether they will return next season as they both will graduate with Clemson degrees at the end of the semester.

"Senior Day, sometimes it's about eligibility. It's your last year and you're not graduating yet but your eligibility is up and you're a senior in eligibility," Swinney said. "Other times, it's about school and graduating. Both of those guys have another year of eligibility. Neither one has made a decision yet on whether or not they're going to come back, but they're both graduating in a few weeks. It's a big deal being a senior. We make it a big deal around here and always have. Seniors fly first class on the plane. I usually fly coach because I want to put the seniors up there. Even our walk-ons. I think there's something to be said about being a senior and that finishing mentality with graduating and earning your degree to prepare yourself for the rest of your life. That's the two guys that have decided they want to be honored but they don't have a decision. At this point, those are the only two who have come to me and said that they want to be honored."
