Clemson had its next-to-last practice before #16 Miami comes to town Saturday for Homecoming. With rain in the area, the Tigers spent 45 minutes of practice in a solid rain.
“It was good for us to get some work in the rain,” said second year head coach Dabo Swinney. “We worked on some two-minute drills today and are ahead of where we normally are in a game week coming off the open date.”
One of the issues Swinney tackled was the health of two Tiger players.
“KP has his best day today. He felt really good. You could just tell. He was zipping it around really well,” said Swinney.
Another played talked about was redshirt-freshman Spencer Shuey.
“Spencer did pretty much everything today. I feel pretty good about him having a real shot to play if we need him. His status will be finalized Thursday morning,” said Swinney.
Swinney also talked some about the offensive line following practice. While not saying exactly how much time Brandon Thomas and Philip Price will play Saturday, Swinney said he anticipated both would play against the Hurricanes.
“He (Thomas) has had good practices. He’s got to go in and play and give us a blow,” said Swinney.
One of the things Swinney talked about coming off of the bye week was how much it benefited Brandon Ford as well as gave him a chance to get a good look at some of the redshirt freshman.
“Ford has a lot to digest and learn. He also should have no problems increasing his weight from 225 to the 240 range he needs to be at to play tight end. As for the freshman, I really like what I have seen out of Buice, Beasley, Craig, Barnes, and Peters,” said Swinney.
The Tigers return to the practice field tomorrow for their final day of preparation for Miami. Fans are encouraged to attend Tigerama Friday night and then reminded to be early and be loud Saturday against the Hurricanes.
