Two more Tigers won't be making the trip to Orlando for the Champs Sports Bowl next week.
Wide receiver Kelvin Grant has been kicked off the team permanently and will transfer to another school. Head coach Tommy Bowden announced Monday that Grant had been dismissed
from the team for a violation of team rules.
Grant played in five games this season, catching 10 passes for 84 yards before tearing his ACL during practice.
"This is difficult to deal with, but I have a good support system to help me through this," said Grant at the time of the injury. "This is a setback and hurdle to overcome. But, I will work hard to get back on the field next season."
Originally out of Camden, S.C. and a member of 2002 recruiting class, Grant was rated as the No. 16 wide receiver in the country by Scout.com, but he never lived up to expectations due to off the field issues.
He finishes his career at Clemson with has 45 career receptions in 26 games with one touchdown.
Grant is expected to transfer to a Division I school.
Also, DE Kwam Williams won't be making the trip to Orlando due to academic issues. Williams logged 69 snaps in nine games this season and recorded three total tackles.
Williams, unlike Grant, is expected to rejoin the team for the spring semester.
Senior tight end Bobby Williamson will also not make the trip to Orlando due to academics, as reported by CUTigers.com Monday afternoon.
