Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney said he should know later today the future of All American defensive end Vic Beasley. Swinney planned to meet again with Beasley and his mother to discuss the NFL Draft and if that’s in Beasley’s best interest. Swinney has always held to the position that a player should not leave early unless he’s a first round lock. Beasley received a second round grade from the NFL.
Swinney went on to review the 2013 season and gave a glimpse into 2014 as he met with the media to review the just completed season. He said he was excited about the competition at quarterback and running back, and he felt Mike Williams will emerge as a star at wide receiver. Plus, Charone Peake will be back from his knee injury.
Defensively, Swinney expects even more improvement considering the returning players and the development of some players who redshirted this season. He singled out the additions of Carlos Watkins, Kevin Dodd and Martin Jenkins as boosts to the defense for next season.
And Swinney added he does not anticipate any changes on his staff.
