Youth served in Clemson’s final preseason scrimmage

Young players dominated the most significant data during Clemson’s final stadium scrimmage of the preseason. The eighth-ranked Tigers (AP and USA Today) are preparing for their season opener against fifth-ranked Georgia at Clemson’s Memorial Stadium on August 31.

Freshman receiver Mike Williams had three receptions for 111 yards, including a 50-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Nick Schuessler. Freshman T.J. Green, who had missed 10 preseason practices with a knee injury, returned Saturday and had three catches for 24 yards. Red-shirt freshman Germone Hopper had a 22-yard touchdown catch from Cole Stoudt.

Freshman Marcus Edmond of Lower Richland High School in Hopkins, SC, had two interceptions for 56 return yards. He returned one interception for a 26-yard score. Freshman Jadar Johnson had the other interception.

The top tackler in the scrimmage was freshman Ben Boulware of nearby Anderson, SC. He had seven tackles from a linebacker position. Freshman Shaq Lawson had three sacks. And finally, the top rusher in the scrimmage was freshman Wayne Gallman, who had 10 carries for 30 yards.

“We got a lot done today,” said Head Coach Dabo Swinney. “We held out some players today and got a lot of work for some younger players. They performed well. We went over a lot of special situations the second part of the scrimmage and even played an overtime period.”

Many of Clemson’s veterans saw little or no action. All-America quarterback Tajh Boyd played just one series and threw just one pass. Sammy Watkins did not play in the scrimmage at all. Charone Peake played just one series as well. On defense, Travis Blanks, Spencer Shuey, Stephone Anthony, Grady Jarrett and Robert Smith were all held out of the scrimmage.

There were some good performances by veterans as well. With Boyd held out, Cole Stoudt got the majority of the work with the first team and completed 9-17 passes for 157 yards and a score. Martavis Bryant made two leaping catches for 28 yards.

Daniel Rodriguez had two receptions for 26 yards and Chandler Catanzaro had field goals of 41 and 46 yards. Ammon Lakip had a 47-yard boot as well. On defense, Vic Beasley had three sacks and Corey Crawford had two.

“We saw a lot of the freshmen make some plays today. You can see the impact of Shaq Lawson being here in the spring. It has made a difference for him as he came to camp advanced. Korrin Wiggins has been impressive as have a number of the other freshman defensive backs.
