COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins is returning for his senior season, holding off on the NFL draft and giving the Tigers one more season with their starting defensive line intact.
Earlier, draft eligible lineman in ends Clelin Ferrell and Austin Bryant announced their intention to come back. Wilkins made it three-for-three Monday when he told Clemson coaches he too would rejoin a defense that tied with Southern Cal for most sacks in the country at 46.
Wilkins, at 6-foot-4, 300-pounds, is a two-time All-America selection. He was fourth on the Tigers with 60 tackles and tied for third on the team with five sacks.
Wilkins, who graduated in three years this past December, took part in senior day ceremonies last November. He waited until Monday's NFL deadline to decide.
