An injury that cost a Clemson wide receiver most of the 2013 season will end up giving the player an additional season of eligibility.
Clemson announced late last week that Charone Peake has won his appeal and been granted a medical hardship waiver. Peake will now have two years of eligibility remaining.
A starter at the time, Peake suffered a torn ACL in the second game of the 2013 season and did not play again last year. He is competing for a starting job this spring and will be expected to help replace some of the production lost when Sammy Watkins left the Tigers early for the NFL.
Peake, a four-star member of Clemson’s 2011 recruiting class rated as the No. 11 receiver in the country that cycle, was second on the team in catches and yards prior to his injury.
