Onyewu Returns To Clemson

Aug. 20, 2001

Clemson, SC – Clemson Head Men’s Soccer Coach Trevor Adair said Monday that All-ACC back Oguchi Onyewu has returned to Clemson and will play for the Tigers this fall.

“Oguchi had been on a trial with FC Metz in France this summer, but has returned to Clemson,” said Adair. “We are pleased that he has returned to help us compete for the National Championship.” Onyewu went through both Clemson practices on Monday. Clemson begins the fall semester on Wednesday. Clemson will open its regular season August 31 at Cal State Fullerton.

Onyewu had an outstanding freshman season when he started all 20 games. He had five goals and five assists on the way to a first-team All-ACC and first-team All-South season. He was just the second Clemson freshman to make first-team All-ACC since 1981.
