CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Part-time starting offensive lineman Shaq Anthony is transferring from Clemson.

A release from the school stated that Anthony met with Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney on Thursday morning to discuss his decision.

Anthony played in 17 games for the Tigers, making five starts the past two seasons. The 6-foot-4, 280-pound Anthony was not projected as a starter heading into the season for No. 16 Clemson.

Anthony said in a statement he enjoyed his time at Clemson but needed a clean start somewhere he can become a starter.

Swinney says he supports Anthony's choice and wished him well.

The Tigers open the season against No. 12 Georgia on Aug. 30th.
