A week ago, it became official that Clemson running back Mike Bellamy was academically ineligible for the 2012 season. Head coach Dabo Swinney said in a statement that Bellamy, a former five-star recruit, would be taking the JUCO route until his grades got back on track.
Swinney said yesterday to the Greenville News that Bellamy would enroll in a Junior College in Mississippi in hopes of restarting his career.
“I sleep well knowing we did everything we could,” Swinney said. “Did we do everything we could? Was there something more I could have done? These are the questions I always ask myself, and that’s why I’m sleeping well — we did our part.”
Bellamy was second on the team in rushing yards (343) and rushing touchdowns (three) at the time of his first suspension last season.
