Clemson Football: 5 defenders poised to breakout in 2020

The 2020 Clemson football team is considered one of the favorites to get back to the CFB Playoff and compete for yet another National Championship.

The Tigers will be looking to get back to the postseason and avenge a loss in the National Championship last season.

Here are five defenders who are poised for breakout seasons as we continue to prepare for the 2020 Clemson football season.

James Skalski is the only returning starter at linebacker this coming season and has an opportunity to step into the level of ‘elite.’

Skalski showed great physicality last year and will be working on improving his coverage ability this season.
