The biggest change in the Clemson offense from this season to last was the addition of Kelly Bryant at quarterback, but the contributions of a holdover player have impacted the Tigers success immensely.
Ray-Ray McCloud holds Clemson’s all-purpose yardage lead through six games, making an impact in the passing game, the run attack and on special teams.
Despite the fact Hunter Renfrow has three more receptions than McCloud, he’s Clemson’s top gainer in receiving with 291 yards and a touchdown. McCloud has 152 punt return yards gained through the young season, including 58 yards on returns against Wake Forest.
Head Coach Dabo Swinney discussed McCloud’s continued development during his press conference this week. He says McCloud has become a major asset for the Tigers on offense and winning field position battles.
