Former Clemson linebacker Levon Kirkland is up for one of college football’s most significant achievements.

The National Football Foundation announced Monday that Kirkland is one of 80 athletes on their 2023 College Football Hall of Fame ballot. Kirkland played for the Tigers from 1988 to 1991 and was named a Clemson’s Ring of Honor member back in 2019.

Kirkland was a three-time All-American, earning consensus First Team All-American in 1991 and Second Team All-American in 1990. He was a finalist for the 1990 Butkus Award and led a Clemson defensive unit that led the nation in total defense.

He was also a three-time First Team All-ACC performer, and 1989 Gator Bowl MVP that helped the Tigers win two conference titles.
