Sage Ennis changes his transfer destination

Former Clemson Football tight end Sage Ennis entered the transfer portal after the 2023 season.

He announced a commitment to Florida A&M, which is in his hometown of Tallahassee, Florida.

This was followed by the resignation of Rattlers' head coach Willie Simmons, also a Clemson alum, who will be joining Manny Diaz’s staff at Duke.

Following this change at the head of the A&M program, Ennis has announced a change in his plans. He will now be playing in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

This move reunites Ennis with former Clemson offensive coordinator Tony Elliott.

Brent Venables taps a Clemson alum as his next defensive coordinator

When Brent Venables left Clemson to take over the Oklahoma football program, he took along Ted Roof as his defensive coordinator. Roof was a former head coach at Duke and had been serving as an analyst for the Tigers.

Oklahoma parted ways with Roof following the 2023 season, and now Venables has found his replacement with a familiar name.

Zac Alley will be the defensive coordinator for the Sooners in 2024.

Alley is a Clemson alum who worked as a graduate assistant for the football program from 2015-18. He most recently worked as the defensive coordinator for the Jacksonville State Gamecocks under former Clemson offensive coordinator Rich Rodriguez.

NC State picks up a former 4-star receiver

Former Ohio State wide receiver Noah Rogers will be transferring to NC State.

Rogers is a former 4-star prospect from North Carolina that both Clemson and the Wolfpack recruited heavily out of Rolesville High School before he committed to the Buckeyes.

If you are one of those people who don’t like the winter, keep your head up, because it’s only one month until Clemson Softball kicks off, which means summer is around the corner.
