Through 9 games it’s becoming clear that Clemson is relying on 4 players: K.J. McDaniels, Devin Booker, Milton Jennings and Rod Hall. Adonis Filer and Jordan Roper each have the potential to be the 5th, but they also each have substantial room for improvement.
With the departure of T.J. Sapp a short bench becomes ever shorter and while that makes little to no difference in the non-conference schedule, things will be different after the New Year.
Landry Nnoko has shown some improvement, but Demarcus Harrison, Bernard Sullivan and Josh Smith have contributed little with the exception of the first two games of the season against lesser competition.
