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.”
