Dabo Swinney on player leaving Clemson football: ‘Guys aren’t patient’

CLEMSON – Wide receiver Dacari Collins had diminished playing time and apparently diminished patience as well.

Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney in his Wednesday news conference addressed the sophomore’s exit from the team this week and his decision to enter the transfer portal. Collins, who was a key player down the stretch last season and made three starts, had only 12 snaps last week in the 48-20 win against Louisiana Tech.

Fifth-ranked Clemson (3-0, 1-0 ACC) plays Saturday (noon, ABC) at No. 16 Wake Forest (3-0, 0-0).

“Guys aren’t patient much anymore,” Swinney said. “That’s the world we live in.”

Alabama football adds top-10 WR to class of 2023, sets up historic class

Days after snagging one of the country’s best defensive linemen from Texas, Alabama stayed in the Lone Star state for its highest-rated wide receiver prospect. Jalen Hale, a four-star from Longview High, announced his commitment on Wednesday.

Nick Saban’s 2023 recruiting class continues to add big names nationwide. Hale fits that mold. The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder is ranked 51st overall on the 247Sports Composite. He’s the Tide’s ninth top-100 recruit, a group that spreads out across five states.

A three-sport athlete (basketball and track), Hale is a dynamite athlete with 31 career touchdowns and over 100 catches. Under head coach John King, Hale was one of the first Lobos in 15 years to make the varsity roster as a 9th grader. Hale is a lanky wideout that can impact the short and intermediate passing game. His best talent, though, might be his ability to post-up defensive backs and win 1-on-1 matchups

BYU football: Cougars’ defense got a ‘reality check’ from Oregon Ducks

Theories abounded in Provo on Monday and Tuesday as to why the BYU defense, which was so stout against South Florida and Baylor, looked completely lost at Autzen Stadium last Saturday in the embarrassing 41-20 loss to the Oregon Ducks.

A bunch of “heart-to-heart talks” took place as well, according to sophomore defensive lineman John Nelson, who said team leaders such as Lorenzo Fauatea and Tyler Batty spoke up in the defensive line room.

“This is a talented team with a lot of pride. We learned a lesson as coaches, as players. We are embarrassed. But it would be a real mistake for anybody to write off the 2022 Cougars.” — BYU assistant head coach Ed Lamb

“Because that’s what we needed, and coach Kalani (Sitake), doing what he is doing, being a coach, had to give us a reality check,” said Nelson, from nearby Salem Hills High. “I am
