Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney announced Friday that C.J. Spiller’s number will be formally retired Saturday, October 16 during the Maryland game.
Spiller will be in attendance for the retirement celebration as Buffalo does not play that weekend.
C.J. will become the third player in Clemson history to have their number retired. The last to be retired was No. 66 Banks McFadden in 1987. No. 4 was also retired for Steve Fuller.
It will be at least five years before Spiller can be inducted into the Clemson Hall of Fame. A place in the ring of honor will have to wait until after C.J. is inducted into the Hall of Fame.
