Clemson Season Preview 2020

After going 14-1 last season, losing only to LSU and Joe Burrow in the championship game, Clemson is looking for perfection this year, and they’ll have one of the best players in the country back leading them. Potential No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence recently addressed opt-out concerns, and he made it clear that he’s all in this season.

“Everyone’s thought about it, but since I made the decision to play, I haven’t thought about it,” Lawrence told Fox 40 Jackson. “I’m committed. It’s my last year here … and I’m super pumped.” In two seasons as the team’s starter, Lawrence has established himself as one of the best quarterbacks in college football, throwing for 6,945 yards, 66 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He is also a deceptively good runner, racking up 563 yards and nine scores on the ground last year alone.

“It’s about playing football,” Lawrence added. “I don’t want to give up that opportunity to play another year at Clemson. I’m really excited to have at least one more year here and I wasn’t ready to give that up.”

Running back Travis Etienne will also return, which bodes well for this Tigers offense. Etienne was one of the better backs in college football last year, rushing for 1,614 yards on 207 carries (that’s a ridiculous 7.8 yards per carry) while also getting into the end zone 19 times.

The only question mark on offense for the Tigers is the line. Clemson lost four starters on the o-line, and they’re expected to take a slight step back in that area. Junior guard Matt Bockhorst isn’t concerned about the unit’s lack of experience, however. When he was recently asked to summarize the new attitude of the offensive line, Bockhorst did it in just one word: “nasty.” Thus, the group may be young, but early returns have been encouraging so far.

On the defensive side of the ball, Clemson gave up 13.5 points a game last year, which was third in the nation. They will miss eighth overall pick Isaiah Simmons, but KJ Henry and Justin Foster should do a solid job of anchoring this defensive line. Henry had two sacks and 4.5 tackles for a loss last season, and he is embracing his role as a leader on defense this season.

“I’m loving it, loving the influence I have with the guys,” Henry said this week. “I feel like they respect me, respect what I do out here and so I’m just trying to give back and really just teach what I’ve been taught, but definitely my leadership role has grown this year for sure.”

With so many quality players having left the team after last season, how Clemson’s leaders handle the unique challenges of the upcoming season could very well determine the direction of the team — and so far, all arrows still point straight up.
