4. RB Pecking Order
When Travis Etienne announced his return, we immediately saw that the running back room would be a little more crowded than previously expected.
Clemson will return Etienne, Lyn-J Dixon, Michel Dukes, Chez Mellusi and Darien Rencher from last season with incoming freshmen 5-star Demarkcus Bowman and 4-star Kobe Pryor joining the team later this summer.
The pecking order behind Etienne will be defined this spring and could very well result in a transfer. Look for there to be major competition among these veterans- especially in the 3-deep behind Dixon- as they look to gain reps and earn playing time on the field before the freshmen arrive.
