Clemson Head Coach Dabo Swinney addressed the media for the final time Wednesday before his team begins summer workouts on campus.
Swinney addressed the situation involving a photo of Tee Higgins posing at a Piedmont car dealership as a product of “the world we live in”, and referenced the story as “click bait”. He added that Higgins did nothing wrong and called him “one of the best kids there is”.
The Tigers’ Head Coach also praised the new NCAA legislation on red-shirting players and the new policy on transfers.
The NCAA ruled Wednesday that transfers now will notify teams of their intent to transfer, dropping them into a database where any coach can contact them without penalty. The new stipulations also prevent teams from restricting where a player can continue their career, and will go into practice in October.
Also starting this season, players can play in up to four games and still be eligible to use the season as a redshirt, gaining an extra year of eligibility.
