DB Dylan Sumner-Gardner Profile
Against Rockwall High School, Sumner-Gardner recorded eight tackles and a pass breakup.
"It was fun. I was real nervous on the first drive. After the first drive, I got used to it, and I started to play like I usually play," he told CUTigers recently.
The night after Sumner-Gardner made his varsity debut, he watched Clemson beat Auburn.
"It was fun. I had a couple of my friends over to watch it," he said.
Sumner-Gardner was confident his future teammates would take care of business in the Georgia Dome.
"I knew Clemson was going to win, going into the game. A lot of people thought they were going to lose because they didn't have Sammy [Watkins], but I knew they wouldn't," he said.
What stood out about the game?
"How DeAndre [Hopkins] and Andre [Ellington] stepped up and how the defense stepped up in the fourth quarter. I liked it."
Sumner-Gardner, who committed to Clemson before wrapping up his camp visit in June, isn't sure how soon he'll return to Tigertown.
It's not an easy trip for the 6-foot-1, 190-pound junior. Mesquite, Tex. is a solid 20-hour bus ride away from Clemson.
"I know me and couple of my friends from school, we're going to try to come up there next summer for the camp," Sumner-Gardner said.
