Clemson football will lose another reserve from its national title team.
Defensive back Korrin Wiggins, who started six games in 2014 and was knocked out of the 2015 season with a torn ACL, will leave the program. A team spokesman confirmed the news first reported by TigerNet.com.
Wiggins made 13 tackles in 194 snaps across seven games with one start in 2016. He didn’t play in the team’s final six games.
In line to finish his degree this semester, Wiggins told TigerNet he was given his release after the staff wanted to move in a different direction. He is reportedly blocked from joining any team on Clemson’s schedule, plus South Carolina, though he is appealing that.
The Tigers already had seen defensive tackle Scott Pagano transfer to Oregon and cornerback Adrian Baker go to Oklahoma State.
