Pro Football Focus has released their pre-season All-ACC teams, and sixteen Clemson Tigers made the cut. Clemson led the league with sixteen players named to the three squads, with Will Shipley being named twice.
Running back Shipley, linebacker Jeremiah Trotter and cornerback Nate Wiggins were named to the first team. The biggest surprise of the first team was that the Miami Hurricanes led the way with eight players, followed by Florida State, North Carolina, and Duke with four.
Wide receiver Antonio Williams, tight end Jake Briningstool, offensive guard Marcus Tate, defensive linemen Tyler Davis and Ruke Orhorhoro, linebacker Barrett Carter and safety R.J. Mickens were named to the second team. Shipley was also named to the second team as a return specialist.
Quarterback Cade Klubnik, tackle Blake Miller, center Will Putnam, defensive end Xavier Thomas, and safeties Jalyn Phillips and Andrew Mukuba (listed as a flex player) were named to the third team.
In addition to the depth demonstrated by the Tigers with so many entries, it is exciting to see young players like Williams, Klubnik, and Miller named as true sophomores.
Clemson Tigers alum Brevin Galloway is continuing his basketball career in the professional ranks in Europe. Galloway has signed with BC Nevėžis.
BC Nevėžis is located in Kėdainiai, Lithuania. It is known as Nevėžis-OPTIBET for sponsorship reasons. They finished eighth in the Lithuanian Basketball League last season.
Galloway only played one season for Clemson after transferring from Boston College, but he became a very popular Tiger. It is good to see him continue his career.
