Starting center battle heating up, Swinney names current front runner for the position

Dabo Swinney and the Clemson football program are looking for someone to step up and start under center. Swinney himself has named a front-runner to land the starting job.

With the Tigers’ spring game approaching, Swinney met with the media Wednesday to discuss the team and what to expect for the game. Ryan Linthicum, Trent Howard, and Harris Sewell are currently battling for the starting center position, with Swinney noting that Linthicum will “be running out first” in the spring game.

“I want to see transformation in some areas of his commitment, if you will. I want his body to be in the best possible place…if he puts the work in, I think we’ll all like the work. He’s certainly capable,” Swinney said.

This position battle is one of the most important the Tigers have as center while not a glamorous position, is an essential one. We’ll see how each player fares on Saturday as the Tigers look to improve and show fans what they have going for next season.
