Much like when multiple former Clemson football players opted to enter the portal on the same day earlier in December, there was a flurry of activity yesterday on where these former Tigers would play next season.
Also, with UCLA expected to get a MAC transfer and Bo Nix returning to Oregon, rumors began to swirl about a landing spot for D.J. Uiagalelei. I’m not much of an unsubstantiated rumor kind of guy, so I’ll let it play out and see where he ends up.
Unsurprisingly, with the number of players in the portal, not everyone has found a spot on another roster and while most of Clemson’s recruits were highly sought after, no one is guaranteed anything moving forward.
With all of those caveats out there, here are the transfer destinations that have been announced on social media:
Linebacker LaVonta Bentley, one of my favorite players to watch on the defense in recent years, is heading to Colorado to play for Coach Prime.
Former four-star cornerback and Jacksonville native Fred Davis is headed to UCF.
Meanwhile, it appears wide receiver E.J. Williams is still searching for his landing spot.
The Clemson women scored 28 in the opening frame and led North Carolina State by 6 at the end of the first quarter, but only scored 31 the rest of the game in a 77-59 loss to No. 8 N.C. State Sunday evening in Raleigh.
The Clemson men blasted Richmond 85-57 Saturday and will play Georgia Tech in Atlanta tomorrow on ESPN2 in what will be the first of 19 consecutive ACC Conference games.
Clemson football is holding steady at -6.5 favorites in Orange Bowl
While most of the bets (64%) and most of the money (68%) is coming in on the Tennessee Volunteers in the upcoming Orange Bowl, it hasn’t apparently been enough to move the spread from Clemson -6.5.
The bets (63%) and money (99%) are also on the Volunteers on the money line.
The over under is currently 63.5.
Interestingly enough ESPN gives Tennessee a 57.4% chance of winning the game.
