Following reports Wednesday by the Charleston Post&Courier and TigerIllustrated.com indicating an imminent announcement from Clemson on future conference plans, a Clemson athletic official provided the following statement Thursday:
“No changes since expansion announcement (when the ACC added three additional schools in late summer).”
“Clemson’s leadership has been aligned and consistent throughout this process and continues to position our University for long-term success.”
The Post&Courier story indicated the Tigers’ potential destination is the SEC. Media reports during the summer linked the Tigers’ potential jump to the Big Ten.
TigerIllustrated.com later reported Wednesday that Clemson will announce its move in October.
An agenda for a scheduled Clemson Board of Trustees meeting next Thursday and Friday has yet to be posted and there was no response from the school upon 7 News’ request for an agenda for the meetings.
