It was the first of Clemson’s four two-a-days scheduled in August camp, with two more this week and the final two-a-day set for August 17. Clemson worked for just over two hours in the morning, and will return in the evening for a walk-through practice.
The Tigers were again without head coach Dabo Swinney, who is in Alabama following
the passing of his father, Ervil, on Saturday. He is scheduled to return to Clemson
The physical tone was set early in the indoor practice facility with two periods of
the PAW drill. The Tigers also went through 7-on-7, full team and red zone
situations Monday morning.
Freshman quarterback Kelly Bryant was sharp in the 7-on-7 drill, completing 7-9
passes, including a 45-yarder to Germone Hopper for a touchdown. Hopper out-jumped
Mackensie Alexander for the score, but Alexander responded by breaking up a Bryant
pass two plays later. Deshaun Watson stood out in the redzone, throwing touchdown
strikes to Jay Jay McCullough and Charone Peake.
The defense made its share of plays Monday morning as well. Travis Blanks and Korrin
Wiggins both recorded interceptions in the full team drills, while Cordrea
Tankersley broke up a pair of pass attempts.
Several players upgraded to green jerseys from an injury perspective. Marcus Edmond,
Kendall Joseph and Ryan Norton were limited participants in practice. The only
player in a yellow jersey was tight end Stanton Seckinger.
