Safety Jadar Johnson says he is enjoying his new role as the starter for second-ranked Clemson. After waiting his turn the last three years behind guys like Jayron Kearse, T.J. Green and Robert Smith, he is finally “the man” and he is having a lot of fun.

Johnson spoke to the media earlier this week about the Auburn game and being the starter.
