James Skalski will not see his career at Clemson end with the targeting call against Ohio State.

The senior linebacker has announced he will return to Clemson and take advantage of that extra year that the NCAA has offered athletes.

A second-team All-ACC selection this past season, Skalski recorded 44 total tackles including 3.5 tackles for loss. He also added 1.5 sacks, three pass breakups and three quarterback pressures.

The 2021 season will mark Skalski’s sixth year in the Clemson program and means all three of Clemson's starting linebackers will be back for 2021.
