Fresh off of a national title run, Clemson defensive tackle Scott Pagano is set to find a new home.
In a statement released by head coach Dabo Swinney on Friday, it was revealed that Pagano will be pursuing a graduate transfer. He will be eligible to play for his new team immediately.
“I met with Scott Pagano yesterday. We had a good talk and he told me about his intentions to be a graduate transfer for his final year of eligibility,” Swinney said. “I told him to think about it overnight. We wanted him to stay, but he said he had accomplished everything he wanted to do at Clemson.”
