Clemson’s Orange team defeated the White team 19-14 on Saturday in the Tigers’ annual Orange & White Spring Game in Death Valley. Clemson wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud played a big role in the game and because of such he was named the game’s Most Valuable Player by The Clemson Insider.
While he’s a bit of an odd candidate for M.V.P of the Spring Game, McCloud showed he can do it all for Clemson, both on offense and on special teams.
The quarterbacks played well, but nobody had a better all-around game than McCloud. Even with limited touches McCloud finished the game with 110 all-purpose yards. He caught four passes for 34 yards, ran the ball two times for 12 yards and returned to kicks for 66 yards.
Tavien Feaster did have more all-purpose yards (mostly off of kick returns) but McCloud will provide the offense with unmatched versatility and speed this year, especially if he focuses on cutting down on mistakes and mental lapses that plagued him during several games last season.
