Monday News & Notes

It has now been confirmed by the athletic department that Tymere Zimmerman will not be attending Clemson University this fall. In other news, it appears as though starting running back Bernard Rambert might miss this Saturday's game against Louisiana Tech.

It was learned earlier today that wide receiver Tymere Zimmerman will not be attending Clemson this fall. This has now been confirmed by the Clemson University athletic department.

Zimmerman, who originally signed with the Tigers in the 2001 class, enrolled at Fork Union Prep last season after failing to qualify. He had a productive year as one of the top wide receivers on the team and then re-signed with Clemson this past February.

It appeared as though he had everything in line to enroll at Clemson University after getting the necessary score on his standardized test this past March, but the NCAA Clearinghouse flagged that final test score. After weeks of waiting, it was learned today that he would not be able to play for the Tigers this fall.

It appears that Zimmerman will likely head to Pikeville College, an NAIA school in Kentucky. He will be eligible to play there this season.

In news out of practice Monday, Tommy Bowden said that starting running back Bernard Rambert probably would not play against Louisiana Tech this Saturday. Rambert spent Monday's practice in the training room treating a strained tendon in a foot.

Starting guard Cedric Johnson also missed the practice with a sprained ankle, but could return for Saturday's game with Louisiana Tech.
