 Xavier Thomas, Clemson, Player News

  Clemson defensive end Xavier Thomas has had an up-and-down career thus far. Swinney is hopeful that the former five-star recruit is ready to finish his time at Clemson on a high note. Thomas has been consistent so far this spring, according to Swinney. That is a big change from last year. The senior missed time at the start of last season as he recovered from COVID, then missed the final two games of the 2020 season for an unspecified reason. "He's been consistent, and he was consistently inconsistent last year. Just for all kinds of reasons," Swinney said. "That's probably the biggest thing has just been his availability. He's been here every day. He's been very consistent. And that's all we need. I'm excited for him to hopefully finish up strong and really have the type of offseason that he needs to have and wants to have." Thomas appeared in seven games last year, making one start. He has 22.5 tackles for loss and nine sacks over three years so far in his college career. - The State

  Xavier Thomas is returning to Clemson for the 2021 season, looking to finally live up to the hype. The former five-star recruit and No. 3 overall prospect for the class of 2018 has played in 34 games through the first three years of his career. He has nine sacks in those 34 games. Thomas was a candidate to transfer or turn pro following this past season but will instead return to Clemson, the school announced late Monday via social media. It has been a difficult college career for Thomas thus far. He had a disappointing sophomore season that saw him record only two sacks and ended with him being suspended for the first quarter of the national title game. This past season he missed the first three games of the year after battling COVID-19 and strep throat over the summer. - The State

  The junior defensive end got his first sack of the season as he continues to work his way back into the rotation. Thomas battled COVID-19 and strep throat this summer and was sidelined as Clemson went through summer workouts. He didn't make his season debut until the Miami game on Oct. 6. - The State

  Clemson will be without one of its top talents for much of the 2020 season. Tigers coach Dabo Swinney announced Thursday night that defensive end Xavier Thomas will be eligible to play in four games but will redshirt in 2020 after a battle with COVID-19 and strep throat. Thomas, a former five-star recruit, was expected to be a starter for the Tigers this fall. "We are holding him out for medical reasons. Really treating him like an injury. X has probably had more on him than anybody since March," Swinney said. "He's just nowhere near where he needs to be to play football." - The State

  Clemson starting defensive end Xavier Thomas is expected to miss a third consecutive game since suffering a concussion at practice last month. Tigers coach Dabo Swinney says Thomas has made significant progress since entering the concussion protocol before No. 4 Clemson's 45-10 victory at Louisville three weeks ago. However, the team plans to hold him out Saturday against Wofford of the Football Championship Subdivision. Thomas had started four of the team's first six games before getting hurt. The 6-foot-2, 265-pound sophomore from Florence is third on the Tigers with 4+ tackles for loss. Clemson (8-0) is looking for its 24th consecutive victory when it takes on Wofford (5-2). - AP College Football

  Clemson defensive end Xavier Thomas is expected to return this week from concussion protocol when the No. 4 Tigers play Boston College. Says defensive coordinator Brent Venables: "I think he probably will, but we'll see." Thomas was hurt during practice and did not travel for Clemson's 45-10 win over Louisville. The 265-pound sophomore has started four of the first six games for Clemson (7-0, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). He's tied for third on the team with 4.5 tackles for loss and with six quarterback pressures. Justin Foster started in his place against Louisville and was named the ACC defensive lineman of the week with two sacks. - AP College Football

  Clemson's defense still looks ferocious after saying goodbye to four defensive linemen taken in the NFL draft, including three in the first round. The Christian Wilkins-led Power Rangers are gone, but a new set of superheroes already is emerging. Against Texas A&M, No. 1 Clemson allowed only 4.2 yards per play and kept the Aggies out of the end zone until 6 seconds were left in the game.

End Xavier Thomas is the type of pass rusher who could develop into a first overall draft pick. Freshman defensive tackle Tyler Davis has already worked his way into the starting lineup and against A&M he put a few Aggies' offensive linemen on skates. The talent never seems to run out at Clemson and, of course, there is one constant: defensive coordinator Brent Venables. Clemson has upped his pay to more than $2 million per year, but the return on investment is still high for coach Dabo Swinney. "The opposing teams are fortunate because they have to play Coach V once," Clemson co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott said. "We have to play him year-round. - AP College Football
