Clemson safety Joseph Charleston is leaving the program, the school confirmed Monday.
A Clemson spokesperson said Charleston informed the team of his intent to transfer. On3.com was the first to report the news of Charleston’s departure.
Charleston is the second Tiger to enter the transfer portal in the past month. Running back Lyn-J-Dixon also left the program.
Charleston didn’t play against Syracuse on Friday, the second game he’s missed because of a hamstring injury. He has played 66 snaps and made seven tackles this season.
Last season, Charleston appeared in 11 games and was third on the team with 55 tackles. He was expected to contend for a starting spot this season.
247Sports had Charleston as a four-star prospect coming out of high school in Georgia, ranked No. 13 at safety in the Class of 2019. He picked Clemson over Alabama, Ohio State, Georgia, and Florida State.
Tigers head coach is expected to speak with the media for the weekly press conference on Tuesday. He’ll also hold his weekly radio show, Tiger Calls, this evening.
Clemson is 4-2 on the season and will travel to Pittsburgh on Saturday. Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m.
