5 Clemson Football players in a battle for their job in Spring Football

With both coordinators returning for the first time since 2021, this spring for Clemson Football will be less focused on installation and more focused on evaluation.

Troy Stellato

This is a name you might not have expected to see on this list, and that is understandable because it is far from a lock that Stellato will be in the starting lineup in 2024. I am inferring that he has this spot for now.

The final depth chart for the Gator Bowl still had Antonio Williams and Tyler Brown listed as co-starters at the slot receiver position. This wasn’t a surprise because Williams was returning from an injury that cost him most of the second half of the 2023 season.

The speculation from many, myself included, is that Clemson will try to find a way to get their two most talented receivers on the field in the starting lineup, which means one of them will move to an outside receiver position.

Due to injuries, both Stellato and Adam Randall started the Gator Bowl. Presumably, they would be next in line for the third starting receiver spot in 2024. I am inferring Stellato would be in that spot if there were a depth chart released at the beginning of spring ball.

Stellato will have to work hard to keep that spot. Not only will Randall be competing for it, but Cole Turner will be returning following a season-long injury.

There will also be Bryant Wesco, one of two freshmen who will be joining the team for 2024 (TJ Moore is not an early enrollee). Wesco is a 4-star receiver ranked 48th nationally by 247Sports. He will need to add some bulk to his frame, but he will likely get every opportunity to showcase what he can do.
