Another Clemson running back to transfer

·1 min read

Another member of Clemson’s backfield is leaving the program.

Michael Dukes is going to transfer, a school spokesperson told The State on Thursday night.

It is the second straight day a Clemson player said they are leaving the program. Safety Javon Charleston was going to enter the transfer portal.

Dukes is the second running back to announce they are leaving. Lyn-J Dixon announced less than a month ago he is entering the transfer portal.

Dukes has only two carries this season, both coming against SC State. Last season, he had eight carries for 55 yards. As a freshman, he had 150 yards rushing and two touchdowns.

Dukes, who played at First Baptist in Charleston, committed to the Tigers in February of 2019. 247Sports ranked Dukes a three-star prospect and 11th best in the state for Class of 2019.

Dukes also was a basketball standout and visited Syracuse and East Carolina, which offered him to play both football and basketball. South Carolina also offered him early in the recruiting process.
