Clemson running backs coach and co-offensive coordinator Tony Elliott announced who will start at running back and tight end in the opener against Kent State when meeting with reporters following Thursday's practice.
At running back the Tigers will give C.J. Fuller the first opportunity.
Fuller has been listed as the first-string guy since Wayne Gallman's departure but was being pushed by Adam Choice and Tavien Feaster, as well as true freshman Travis Etienne, during fall camp.
"He finished out last season running second behind Wayne. He also came through the spring as the number one guy and he held his own through camp," Elliott said.
He added that Choice and Feaster are still battling for the No. 2 job.
Elliott also announced that Milan Richard will start at tight end and Tremayne Anchrum is slightly ahead of Sean Pollard for the right tackle job.
Fuller has 382 yards and a touchdown on 89 carries in his career.
Richard, a redshirt junior, has one catch for nine yards in his career.
