NFL team signs former Clemson basketball player

By

A former Clemson basketball player has been signed by an NFL team.

The Jacksonville Jaguars announced today they have made a number of roster moves, including signing tight end Naz Bohannon.

Bohannon, who was invited to rookie minicamp with the Jaguars, made himself eligible for the NFL Draft shortly after the Tigers’ basketball season but went undrafted, though that was hardly unexpected. Bohannon hadn’t played football since his senior year at Lorain (Ohio) High School, where he was a dual-sport athlete.

He chose basketball over football in college and began his career at Youngstown State, where he was a 1,200-point scorer over four seasons before transferring to Clemson. A 6-foot-6, 225-pound forward on the hardwood, Bohannon averaged 5.7 points and 4.0 rebounds in his lone season with the Tigers. He scored a season-high 13 points against Duke on Jan. 10.

Bohannon lined up at tight end and receiver in high school, and the Jags clearly liked what they saw from him as a tight end during his weekend minicamp tryout.
