Spring Preview: It’s Rodgers’ time to shine in the slot position

As Clemson moved into the 2019 season, no one really knew what would become of the slot position.

Diondre Overton came out of the summer as the starter. Last spring, Amari Rodgers, the projected starter in the slot, tore his ACL and his return was questionable at best. However, by Week 2 of the season he was back on the field and by Week 5 he earned his starting position back, as well as the Tigers’ punt return specialist.

Though Rodgers returned from a torn ACL in less than six months, the season as a whole did not go as he would have liked.
