The Clemson Tigers are coming off one of the greatest college football seasons ever and are in prime position to repeat as national champions in 2019. Unfortunately, one freshman defensive lineman won't be a part of the team - or any Clemson team moving forward.

Speaking to the media on Monday, head coach Dabo Swinney revealed that freshman defensive end Logan Cash was withdrawing from Clemson. He explained that an injury was going to keep Cash out of the season

However, Swinney would not say explicitly if the injuries themselves had a big part in Cash's decision to move on.

"I wish him all the best for sure," Swinney said.

Cash was a three-star prospect coming out of high school this past year. 247Sports had him as the No. 418 recruit in the nation, the No. 28 strong-side defensive end, and the No. 43 recruit from the state of Georgia.

Over the last two seasons he's been a pass rushing juggernaut at Winder-Barrow High School. He recorded 169 tackles, 55.5 tackles for loss, 30.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles in the last two seasons.

He committed to Clemson in June 2018, just before his senior year of high school.

We certainly wish Logan the best in his future endeavors.
