CLEMSON, S.C. (WSPA/AP) — Clemson starting cornerback Derion Kendrick is no longer part of the Tigers’ program.
A team spokesman confirmed Kendrick’s status on Sunday. Kendrick is a 6-foot senior from Rock Hill, South Carolina, who missed games last season due to discipline issues.
He has been projected as a high-round NFL draft pick but said in January he would return to Clemson for another season. Kendrick was a starter the past two seasons and was expected to start again this fall.
He was named a first-team all-ACC cornerback last season.
