Junior Linebacker Tre Lamar has announced his decision to enter the NFL draft and forgo his senior season at Clemson. The Junior linebacker who was named ALL Conference hails from Roswell, Ga.
Dear Clemson Family,
I cannot truly express my thanks and my gratitude for the many blessings I’ve had in my time as a student-athlete at Clemson. First, I want to thank my mom, my dad and my sister. I am so thankful for their unwavering love and support and am proud to represent the Lamar family.
I want to thank Coach Venables for pouring his time and energy into my development. Since my days at Roswell High School, he has been committed to my development as a player, as a student and as a man, and I will always be grateful to him for it.
I also want to thank Coach Swinney for what he’s built at Clemson and for allowing me to be a part of it. The world has begun to see what we already know — that is that Clemson is a special place filled with special people. Coach Swinney loves and serves his players, and I will always appreciate his role in this time of my life.
I must also thank my brothers in the locker room. It’s been an honor to step on the field with each of you guys, and I’ll always be proud of what we accomplished together.
To the Clemson Family, I will never forget Death Valley and the energy you brought to it every week. You are truly the best fans in the world. You helped make my three years here at Clemson special, and I will carry great memories with me for the rest of my life.
With all that said, after much consideration, I have elected to forgo my senior season and enter the 2019 NFL Draft. I am so thankful for my entire time at Clemson, and though I may wear a new uniform going forward, I will always remain a Clemson Tiger.
Just a kid from Roswell,
