Clemson coach Dabo Swinney confirms suspension of 3 players
Clemson has suspended three players for the entirety of postseason play, coach Dabo Swinney confirmed at a press conference on Wednesday.
Freshman wide receiver Deon Cain, senior kicker Ammon Lakip and junior tight end Jay Jay McCullough were all sent home after failing a drug test. Swinney said that even if Clemson beats Oklahoma on Thursday and advances to the national championship game, the three players would not participate.
Clemson has had 10 different players catch a touchdown pass this season and seven record at least 20 receptions.
All three players suspended are listed as backups on the Clemson depth chart.
