Clemson can now add the name of Virginia native and Tigers former starting safety K’Von Wallace to this years 2020 NFL Draft rolls. The former Tiger hard hitting team captain was picked by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 4th round. The one player if you had to point to for a “pulse” of this team from week to week… Wallace was a great barometer as he was very open about the love he had for his teammates and coaches and especially Clemson.
K’Von was a last minute offer in the 2016 recruiting class and it was down to the Tigers and Ohio State when Wallace informed Swinney he was coming to Clemson to play his college football. From the scout team to special teams to starter, Wallace went through the gauntlet and became a productive All Conference product under the watchful eye of safeties coach Mickey Conn. K’Von was solid in run support and able to cover backs out of the backfield and tight end’s with ease. Look no further than 2018’s matchup at Texas A&M and you see the toughness and determination Wallace played with and is known for.. Now it’s on to the NFL and the Eagles of Philly for one of the Clemson nations favorite Tigers over the past four seasons.
