Kyler McMichael Enters Transfer Portal

Camp hasn’t even started and we already have a casualty as Kyler McMichael is looking to transfer out of the Clemson Football program. The sophomore played in 12 games last season as a freshman and accumulated 101 snaps.

Coming out of high school, he was ranked as the eighth best corner and was listed as the backup to AJ Terrell on the post spring depth chart, so the timing of this one does seem odd.

That amps up the pressure on five star freshman phenom Andrew Booth, who wasn’t a part of spring practice but will be in camp. With McMichael seemingly out of the picture, there’s a spot open on the two deep and lots of snaps to be had.

It also means that Derion Kendrick’s move is without question a permanent one. He’s been in the role for just one spring and has locked down a starting spot. The fact that he beat out McMichael is a testament to just how good he’s been.

Another youngster that might benefit from this is Sheridan Jones. The four star freshman from Virginia impressed throughout the spring after enrolling early and looks to see plenty of time on the field in 2019.

One thought on “Kyler McMichael Enters Transfer Portal

  1. If McMichael wants out he should go. There are other players behind him that would love to have the opportunity to play for, and with, the Clemson team. Those players are ready and willing to put in the work to succeed and to retain their positions. Football is a lot like life–hard work earns you the right to move forward; competition is always part of that equation.
