Could former Rivals100 tackle land at Florida?
Former Rivals100 offensive tackle Jake Fruhmorgen said he's leaving Clemson because he wants to be closer to home.
Three days after Clemson won a national title in his hometown -- by beating his father's alma mater, no less -- Fruhmorgen told Dabo Swinney he's transferring.
This is an extraordinarily odd turnabout on the surface, but when we reached Fruhmorgen on Friday morning to learn more about his thought process he was matter-of-fact in a brief phone conversation.
"For a while I was uncomfortable, a little homesick," he said. "I went to the Florida State game, and it really kind of hit home to me that we were in Florida. And it just kind of resonated in my mind that I wasn't really far from home."
Fruhmorgen was referring to the eighth game of the season, which Clemson won 37-34 in Tallahassee. That was his eighth consecutive start, but Sean Pollard played 25 snaps in that game after Fruhmorgen suffered a shoulder injury.
