Clemson wide receiver Hunter Renfrow is glad to be back out on the practice fields after the Tigers kicked off spring practice Wednesday.
This is a different year for Renfrow than his previous three. He enters as one of two remaining wide receivers from Clemson’s national championship runs. Trevion Thompson being the other.
This spring, the Tigers will be looking for two new starters at the boundary and field receiver positions.
Since the Tigers’ 2016 National Championship, Clemson stars Mike Williams, Artavis Scott, Deon Cain and Ray-Ray McCloud have all left the program to pursue their dreams in the NFL. Cain and McCloud are competing Saturday in the on-field workouts at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis.
“It is honestly weird,” Renfrow said. “I was sitting there and I see Maverick Morris as a coach now. Adrian Dunn, who was a receiver, is coaching and I was expecting to see Ray-Ray and Deon out there. It was only a year and a half ago Mike and them were out there … yeah, thirteen months ago I was playing with Mike, so it is different seeing that.
“But being the older guy, it gives me the opportunity to kind of lead and be a better leader.”
