Clemson Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney announced Saturday that defensive ends Clelin Ferrell and Austin Bryant, linebacker Kendall Joseph and cornerback Mark Fields are all returning to school next season, according to Clemson Sports Information Director Tim Bourret.
Bourret also noted that Swinney did not comment on defensive tackle Christian Wilkins’ status.
Ferrell will be a junior in 2018, while Bryant, Joseph and Fields will all be seniors.
The quartet of defenders were part of a Clemson team that finished the regular season ranked No. 1 in the nation before falling to the eventual national championship-winning Alabama Crimson Tide in the Sugar Bowl.
