“Everyone that goes through the program considers Clemson their second home,” said Clowney. “When I came back to Clemson last fall, it was like coming home again. I appreciate the opportunity Coach Bramble has given me. The athletic department, the university, and the facilities at Clemson are second to none, and I am glad to be part of this program. When I came back to Riggs Field last fall, it was as if I never left. Clemson is a special place, and it’s where I want to be. Last fall was exciting as we advanced to the Elite Eight in the NCAA Tournament. The level of play in the ACC is unmatched as we have the best teams in the nation. I look forward to this fall and this opportunity to work with the Clemson program.”
