The Tigers will hold their first practice of the spring on March 5, and will play the Orange-White Spring Game on Saturday, April 12, at 4 p.m.
Time for the game has been changed from 3 p.m. due to live coverage by ESPNU.
Dabo Swinney is making a big push to turn the spring game into the Tigers' 'eighth home game,' with a near capacity crowd, tailgating and all the activities of a fall Saturday.
Deshaun Watson 'good to go': Swinney says that freshman quarterback Deshaun Watson will be "good to go" for spring practice after rehabbing a minor knee injury he suffered in his final high school game.
Freshman linebacker Chris Register, meanwhile, is still limited by a stress fracture he suffered during his high school season, but should be OK to practice next month.
Charone Peake limited in spring: Rising junior wide receiver Charone Peake likely won't be cleared for contact this spring, but will work out in a limited capacity. Swinney says he should be fine by the beginning of preseason camp in August.
Restocking in the trenches: Swinney and recruiting coordinator Jeff Scott expect the Tigers' 2015 signing class to be heavy on offensive linemen. The Tigers got off to a great start on the offensive front with top-rated Mitch Hyatt committed to Clemson on signing day, joining previously-committed Noah Green.
Two quarterbacks: The Tigers picked up a commitment from 2015 quarterback Tucker Israel last week. Swinney said he plans to take two quarterbacks in the class.
A new tight end: Redshirt freshman D.J. Greenlee of Daniel High will work at tight end this spring, according to position coach Danny Pearman.
Big footsteps: Swinney envisions wide receiver signee Trevion Thompson playing alongside Mike Williams at the 'nine-man' position where Nuk Hopkins and Martavis Bryant excelled. He said Kyrin Priester could work at any of the three positions.
Giving thanks: Jeff Scott praised new Clemson president Jim Clements and expressed his appreciation for his contributions in recruiting this year's signing class.
