Get to Know Your Orange Man: #40, RB Nicky Clifton

Position: Running back

Year: Freshman

Height: 6’0”

Weight: 217

Hometown: Nashville, Tenn.

High School: Ensworth (via Kent School)

2018 stats: At Connecticut’s Kent School, Clifton ran for 106 yards on 25 carries, with one touchdown (all in one game). MaxPreps stats are weird, but this is what we have available. He had 1,215 yards and 16 touchdowns as a senior at Ensworth.

2019 projections: It seems likely that he’ll get a redshirt, but he may be good enough to potentially work his way into the running back conversation (or at least playing special teams) down the road.
