Clemson Has Scheduled Its Visit To The White House

The Tigers will be meeting with the president this summer.

Clemson's football program has scheduled its trip to the White House.

The Tigers, who won the national championship this past season with a victory over Alabama in the College Football Playoff title game, will be going to Washington, D.C. this summer.

Dabo Swinney told reporters the Tigers will be going on June 12.

From the Post & Courier:

"I know we're going to leave really early (on the 12th) and get back late (at night), so it'll be a great experience. I got to do it as a player back in 1992 — the spring of 1993 — so I'm excited for our guys to have an opportunity to get to go," Swinney said Tuesday from his Columbia Prowl and Growl stop. "I don't know if all of them can go, some of our (former) seniors have camps and stuff, but it'll be a fun trip. The Capitol and the White House — you get to do something in a way that very few people get to do."

It's unclear if everyone will be able to make the trip, but most of the Tigers' national championship team should be in attendance.
