“No. This is, again, a decision he made for some personal things he’s dealing with,” Swinney said. “There’s nothing else to say, guys. I’m not going to answer any other questions about D.J. Reader. I put a statement out. Don’t ask me another question about him. I want to talk about the guys that are here on this team, period to end. …I’ve answered your questions, I’ve made a statement, there’s nothing else to say.”
Despite the fact there have been a handful of players find trouble during the offseason, Swinney said he doesn’t think it’s been a bad summer; on the contrary, he said it has been a great summer, sans a few bad apples.
This off season a total of six Clemson players have either quit, been suspended, dismissed from, or left the team for personal reasons.
