Ferrell discusses his upcoming NFL decision


by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson standout defensive end Clelin Ferrell spoke the media following his team's 35-6 win over Duke on Saturday night.

TigerNet's David Hood asked Ferrell if there was a possibility of him returning for his senior season to Clemson.

"Yea for sure. I haven't made a decision yet," he said. "Whatever people assume, you can't assume because they aren't me. Last season people thought I was going to leave. At the end of the day, it is a decision that I have to make. I haven't made that decision yet. I'm focusing on the present right now."

Most NFL mock drafts have him in the first 20 picks of the 2019 NFL draft.

Individually, he had five tackles including two sacks and a pass-breakup against Duke.

On the game:

“I just wanted to go out there and play well. Obviously, my family is watching, and everybody’s family is watching, so I wanted to go out there and play well for my mom...and my dad is looking down on me right now, so I definitely wanted to put on a good performance for him.”

On senior day:

“I didn’t want to take this moment for granted. It was just a great experience.”

On team’s recent performance:

“I feel like we’re hitting our stride right when we need to. Obviously, you want to be playing well when you’re about to go into the state championship game, so it’s good to be hitting our stride right when this game happens.”
