The Clemson Insider has confirmed from multiple sources that offensive tackle Jake Fruhmorgen is transferring from Clemson.
Fruhmorgen met with head coach Dabo Swinney on Thursday prior to the team meeting to tell him of his decision. The Tampa, Florida native has decided to leave Clemson now and will be home in Tampa this spring. There is no word on where he plans to transfer.
TCI reported on Dec. 26 that there was a player considering a transfer from Clemson. We learned from our sources in Florida at the time that Fruhmorgen’s father was telling some of the coaches down there that his son was leaving Clemson.
Fruhmorgen, a sophomore, last played for Clemson on Oct. 29 at Florida State. He played 56 snaps that night before injuring his shoulder. He did not dress the following week against Syracuse because of the injury and then the next week he took a leave of absence from the team due to personal reasons and did not return.
Fruhmorgen played in eight games this year, including a season-high 94 snaps against NC State on Oct. 15. He was a starter in all eight games he played in prior to the shoulder injury.
In 2015, he played in seven games as a reserve as he recorded seven knockdown blocks in 245 snaps.
