Spent some time with Tee Higgins earlier this season. Quiet, thoughtful kid who had a phenomenal year (and should have been a Biletnikoff finalist). Crushed that he won’t get to play in this game.— Nicole Auerbach (@NicoleAuerbach) December 29, 2019
You wonder how much not having Tee Higgins out there is affecting Clemson. Yes, they've got other stars, but the guy averages 20 yards a catch.— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) December 29, 2019
