Ferrell, Bryant, Joseph, Fields all returning for Clemson defense

Clemson just became a title contender again with latest news

Clemson got to the College Football Playoff semifinal behind a stout defense and the solid play of quarterback Kelly Bryant.

Tigers coach Dabo Swinney on Saturday revealed first-round prospect and defensive end Clelin Ferrell will be returning for his senior season.

Bourret indicated that Swinney didn't provide information on junior defensive lineman Christian Wilkins, who is ranked the No. 9 player available for April's National Football League draft by ESPN draft analysts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay.

Joseph led the team in total tackles with 96 on the season while Ferrell was third with 66 and Bryant was seventh with 50.

The protesters were also heard raising slogans against the fashion brand in the shopping center. H&M has since apologised and removed the image as well as the sweater from retail.

Clemson junior receivers Deon Cain and Ray-Ray McCloud, guard Taylor Hearn and safety Van Smith previously announced they're entering the draft.

Ferrell, a red-shirt sophomore in 2017, was first-team All-American by Associated Press and a second team selection by USA Today, Sporting News, the Football Writers Association and Sports Illustrated. In 28 games as a starter Ferrell has recorded 15.5 sacks and 111 tackles for the Tigers. Bryant was a key reserve on that team. He will be presented the Willis Award as the top Defensive Lineman in the nation by the Columbus (Ohio) Touchdown Club in February. In 2017, Bryant has 7.5 sacks with 47 tackles, 14.5 for a loss, one interception and two forced fumbles.

Ferrell, who was named first-team All-ACC, had 5.5 tackles for loss at Syracuse and five in the win over N.C. State.
