The Big 30: Clemons looks to have strong final season

Micheal Clemons has had a stellar training camp.
Micheal Clemons has had a stellar training camp.

Class: Redshirt senior

Height/Weight: 6-foot-5, 270 pounds

2019 stats: 28 tackles, 2.5 TFL, .5 sacks

Projected 2020 role: Starting defensive end

Why he's number 16 on the list: Clemons has been a player two A&M coaching staffs have had high hopes for, and 2020 may be the year he recognizes them. Jimbo Fisher has repeatedly praised the senior, saying multiple times he's had a great training camp. The Aggies need a strong run-stuffing defensive end to play opposite DeMarvin Leal, and Clemons is the best bet to do that job. If his good camp translates to a strong season, the Aggie front line will be very salty.
