News broke out of Clemson late Saturday that starting cornerback Derion Kendrick is no longer with the team and is expected to enter the transfer portal. Kendrick came to Clemson as a much-heralded recruit and the potential was through the roof but never came to fruition. Derion came to Clemson as a much-heralded Athlete (former HS QB) and started his career with the Tigers as a wideout. In 2019 the staff moved him to Cornerback and he was named the starter after fall camp 2019. During the season Kendrick was in and out of the lineup and seemed to always find his way into the Dabo Swinney “Doghouse”. This was the case in previous seasons as well. And this time it looks like Swinney could no longer allow the Rock Hill native to be a part of the 2021 squad and has decided to part ways with the young man. Stay tuned as we dig in and find out the “final straw” but it does not surprise us here with DK’s past here at Clemson.
