He was not on the trip to Wake Forest in week one and in week two, Derion Kendrick did not start against the Citadel, coming into the game after the first play.

But the player who won four state championships as a South Pointe quarterback and then came to Clemson as a receiver could very well end up playing on Sunday at cornerback.

But in the meantime, the junior will get some tough love from head coach Dabo Swinney when the situation arises.

"“DK is a great kid, but we want him to be accountable in every area, academics, tutors, study hall, you name it. All of it. It all matters to us,” Swinney said. 

"So, he got himself in a little bit of a hole this summer, but he has dug himself out. He is coming on.”
