Clemson's Vic Beasley returning for senior season

According to ClemsonTigers.com, Vic Beasley announced on Wednesday that he will play his senior season for the Clemson Tigers. The redshirt junior led the ACC with 13 sacks last season and helped the Tigers finish with a (11-2) record. Clemson won their first and only BCS bowl game against Ohio State in January. The Tigers finished as the seventh ranked team in the country.

The speed rusher could’ve taken his talents to the NFL, but he will be looking for even more success on the field in 2014. There’s no doubt that Beasley will attract much more attention from opposing offenses. However, it will be up to Clemson’s defense to vie for the ACC title.

Clemson already lost quarterback Tajh Boyd to graduation. As CBSsportsline.com notes, the announcement of Sammy Watkins to the NFL should severely hamper Clemson’s offense in the early going. The Tigers may also lose Martavis Bryant to the 2014 draft.

With all of those defections, it could be the defensive mainstays that carry the team. According Clemsontigers.com, Beasley was named ACC defensive lineman of the week three times. He has 21 career sacks and needs eight more to break the school record set by Michael Dean Perry and Gaines Adams.
