Rising redshirt freshman Akeem Robinson has been switched from a defensive lineman back to the offense. Clemson football coach Tommy Bowden said it still wasn't certain whether or not Robinson, who practiced as an offensive lineman last season, will play tackle or tight end.
And with the move of Robinson, rising redshirt sophomore Zach Green has been moved from a reserved tight end to right offensive tackle.
Also seeing action at tight end some on Wednesday was fullback Cliff Harrell.
Basketball player Olu Babalola, who joined the football team this spring in hopes of playing either at defensive end or tight end, practiced a little Wednesday for the first time since Thursday.
Babalola sprained his right ankle and didn't participate in Saturday's scrimmage.
Bowden said when Babalola gets truly healthy that he'll be tested on offense.
"(Babalola missing practice) has made it a lot more difficult," Bowden said. "But if he can catch … the biggest thing is he really hasn't caught the football. We're going to see if he can catch, that's the thing that I think we need to do. So, if he does a good job catching, there some things we can throw him out there and let him do."
Bowden said after practice that rising redshirt junior Stephen Furr is pushing junior kicker Jad Dean for the starting spot.
Furr has performed well the last week, going three-for-three in Saturday's scrimmage, while Dean went three-for-five Saturday. Also, Dean struggled again in practice Wednesday, while Furr was perfect.
"I didn't think Furr and Dean would be a battle but Furr kicked really good today and you know he wasn't kicking that bad when we decided to go with Jad (last year)," Bowden said. "But Jad got on kind of a hot streak. I wish we had a little more competition at punter. Cole hasn't really jumped out off the radar."
