  Cornerback Derion Kendrick, who was dismissed from the Clemson football team in February, is transferring to the Bulldogs. Kendrick announced his plans on Instagram late Tuesday. "I'm focused, determined and ready to WIN!! #godawgs," he wrote. His experience with the Tigers should mean the first team All-ACC pick can be penciled in as a starter for Georgia which lost both of its starting cornerbacks. Kendrick comes with some off-field issues. He was arrested in his hometown of Rock Hill in March for unlawful carrying of a handgun, a misdemeanor, and cited also for simple possession of marijuana.

The marijuana charge is heading to pre-trial intervention, according to records of the Rock Hill Municipal Court. The handgun charge is still pending, according to York County prosecutor Misti Horton who declined further comment to the Athens Banner-Herald Tuesday afternoon through her office. Kendrick missed multiple games last season for "disciplinary reasons," according to the Greenville News. Georgia lost first-rounder Eric Stokes and second-rounder Tyson Campbell. The 6-foot, 190-pound Kendrick is in line to face his former team right out of the gates in the Sept. 4 opener in Charlotte against the Tigers. - Athens Daily Banner

  Former Clemson defensive back Derion Kendrick has found a new place to finish his college football career. Both 247Sports and Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday that Kendrick is transferring to Georgia - confirming an AJC report last week that said the move was in the works. He'll enroll in Athens in the next 24 hours, according to the 247Sports report. He will have two more years of eligibility with the extra year because of COVID-19. Georgia and Clemson kick off the 2021 football season in a game that will be played at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.

Kendrick and former LSU tight end Arik Gilbert are both on their way to join Kirby Smart's Bulldogs, according to Tuesday reports. In February, Clemson announced that Kendrick wasn't on the roster, but the school never confirmed whether or not the senior's departure was discipline-related. Kendrick recently told the On Campus with JB & Sciggy podcast that he wasn't in school because of family obligations and "didn't have too much communication" about it with the Clemson coach staff. He did miss time last season due to discipline issues, including sitting out the Nov. 28 win over Pitt. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney wished Kendrick the best for the future. - The State

  Former Clemson football player Derion Kendrick has been charged with gun and drug violations in his hometown of Rock Hill, according to officials and police records. Derion Rayshawn Kendrick, 20, was arrested Friday morning and charged with unlawful carrying of a handgun, said Lt. Michael Chavis of the Rock Hill Police Department. Rock Hill patrol officers were on May Court around 3 a.m. Friday when Kendrick was found in a car, Chavis said. Kendrick was asleep with a gun in his lap, court records show. Kendrick was issued a citation for simple possession of marijuana after a small amount of the drug was found and seized, Chavis said. Kendrick was the sole occupant of the vehicle, according to an arrest warrant obtained by The Herald. - The State

  Cornerback Derion Kendrick has left the program and is expected to enter the NCAA transfer portal. Kendrick, a senior, was the Tigers' most talented cornerback last season but started in just eight of 12 games because of injuries and "disciplinary issues." Coach Dabo Swinney said Kendrick had been in the "love shack." A former 5-star recruit, Kendrick earned second-team All-ACC honors as a sophomore in 2019. Playing opposite corner back A.J. Terrell - who was later taken No. 16 overall by the Atlanta Falcons in the 2020 NFL Draft - Kendrick recorded 51 tackles (three for loss), six pass breakups and two interceptions. - Charleston Post Courier

  Derion Kendrick was no longer on the roster, a Clemson official confirmed Sunday morning. The school would not say why and would not confirm whether or not the senior's departure was discipline-related. Dabo Swinney is expected to address Kendrick's situation after Monday's practice. Kendrick was named first-team All-ACC last season after appearing in nine games, with eight starts. He signed with Clemson for the class of 2018 as a five-star recruit from South Pointe High School in Rock Hill. Kendrick was projected by some to be a first round pick in this year's NFL draft, despite struggling in the Sugar Bowl against Ohio State as Justin Fields and the Buckeyes passed for 385 yards against the Tigers. However, he opted to return for his senior season, a decision that surprised many. Swinney said last season that Kendrick needed to do a better job from an accountability standpoint moving forward. - The State

  Clemson's top cornerback is returning for his senior season. Derion Kendrick announced on Instagram Monday night that he has made his NFL choice and is returning for one more year. Kendrick posted a picture with the caption "one mo" on Instagram and a source confirmed that Kendrick is indeed returning to school. Kendrick started eight games for the Tigers this past season, leading Clemson in pass breakups with six. He also had 17 tackles, one sack, an interception and a fumble recovery that he returned 66 yards for a touchdown. Kendrick was projected to be a late first round pick in this year's NFL draft by some. - The State

  Fields was brilliant against the Clemson secondary. He finished 22-of-28 passing for 385 yards and six touchdowns with one interception. He often picked on safety Joseph Charleston, who started the first half in place of starter Nolan Turner. Turner was forced to miss the first two quarters because of a targeting call from the Tigers' win over Notre Dame in the ACC Championship game. Cornerback Derion Kendrick was also a favorite target of Fields. Most glaringly, he was beaten by wide receiver Chris Olave late in the third quarter on a 56-yard touchdown. - Charleston Post Courier

  Derion Kendrick, believed to be Clemson's best cornerback entering the season, dressed but didn't play last week because of a disciplinary issue. Swinney said the junior was not in the dog house but in the "love shack." Kendrick got the start Saturday and made good on the opportunity. He had two tackles, and his 66-yard recovery of a fumble for a touchdown gave the Tigers a 31-10 lead late in the third quarter. The more Kendrick plays, the better Clemson's defense is. - Charleston Post Courier

  Derion Kendrick is Clemson's top cornerback from a talent standpoint, but the junior hasn't been on the field much through the first two weeks of the season. Kendrick, who was a preseason All-ACC selection, did not play in Week 1 against Wake Forest for an undisclosed reason, and he didn't start on Saturday against The Citadel for discipline, Dabo Swinney confirmed after the game. Kendrick did resume his spot at cornerback on the second play of the game against The Citadel, but he was put back on the sideline late in the first half after getting a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty during the Tigers 49-0 victory.

TV cameras captured Tigers defensive coordinator Brent Venables giving Kendrick an earful after the penalty, and Swinney said afterward it was a mistake that shouldn't have been made. "Just can't happen," Swinney said. While Kendrick is Clemson's most talented cornerback, the Tigers are deep at the position. Cornerbacks coach Mike Reed has plenty of options, making it easy to call upon another guy if one player isn't doing what he is supposed to. On Saturday the Tigers started sophomores Andrew Booth and Sheridan Jones., with Kendrick coming off the bench. "He just didn't start the game," Swinney said of Kendrick. "Mike's got a lot of competition in his room, too. - The State

  With four of Clemson's top wideouts out for Saturday's scrimmage, receiver-turned-cornerback Derion Kendrick couldn't help but think about the possibility of playing both ways in 2020. "Being competitive, you try to do everything you can to help the team, so yeah, I've had some thoughts that I want to be on both sides, play both sides. God works everything out, not the player," Kendrick said. The Rock Hill native has not worked on the offensive side of the ball yet during fall camp, but he would be open to it.

Kendrick signed with Clemson as a five-star receiver in the class of 2018. He caught 15 passes for 210 yards as a true freshman that year before moving over to the defensive side of the ball and earning second-team All-ACC accolades as a sophomore in 2019. Still, he feels like he has plenty left to prove, particularly after being listed as a co-starter on Clemson's initial depth chart. "It doesn't matter what position, starting or sitting on the bench, it doesn't matter. You always have something to prove," Kendrick said. "It's always something that you're going to do. I always have something to prove. I'm always trying to get better. I'm always trying to take that next step." Kendrick was named to the preseason Thorpe Award watch list after recording 51 tackles, three tackles for loss, six pass breakups and a pair of interceptions in 2019. - The State
