Clemson DE Foster changes mind, will return to Tigers

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Clemson defensive end Justin Foster, who missed the 2020 season due to COVID-19 and asthma, has changed his mind about leaving the Tigers and will rejoin the program.

Foster, a 6-foot-2, 275-pound senior from Shelby, North Carolina, had decided to give up the college game because of lingering affects of contracting the coronavirus combined with his asthma. However, he said he got encouraging news at a recent doctor's appointment and felt good enough to start working out.

Foster called Clemson coach Dabo Swinney that he wanted to come back. "It's not often you get a call from a great player that you think is gone and he says he's coming back, so just a great thing," Swinney said in a statement.
