What freshmen avoid redshirting and contribute this season?

Clemson brought in one of the most talented and complete classes in school history this past season. There were so many four and five stars in that class that it is hard to keep up with all of them. What will be interesting, however, is to see which of these guys avoid redshirting and see the field right away.

  • I would imagine it is going to be hard for Kelly Bryant to not be redshirted, but a stellar camp could land him a spot on the depth chart. I will go ahead and tell you that Deon Cain and Ray-Ray McCloud will not redshirt despite a talented wide receiver core already on campus. Mitch Hyatt and Jake Fruhmorgen both will also be relied upon to provide quality depth on the offensive line.

    Defensively, expect Christian Wilkins to play and from all accounts, it looks like Clelin Ferrell will play as well. It will be interesting to see if Albert Huggins avoids redshirting as well as several others such as Chad Smith, Gage Cervenka, and Denzel Johnson.
