With the absence of Lawrence, Huggins – a native of Orangeburg (South Carolina) and a recent graduate – is likely to get a start and show why he came to Clemson four years ago – an opportunity he does not take seriously.

Huggins said that he and the rest of his teammates took a trio, which is not unusual for this group.
“Of course. The whole team has. I’ve been here for four years, and it’s nice to see something like this happen that everyone’s behaving the same way as they are. Here’s a fraternity and family,” Huggins said. “When you come to these trips come to the families of the entire coaching staff. We contact together. We really spend time with each other and hold events with each other. I know somewhere else in college, it is not. I have not seen it, but I know. just good to see.
“It's nice to see us together as one. I do not necessarily say that what happened brought us closer together, because we are brotherhood and we are friends. It's hard to break this bond. ”
Huggins played in 45 games and started two, and he said he knows what it takes to be a starter and a big contributor.
“I had the opportunity to start, and I know what I need to do and how I need to prepare,” he said. “I cook the same thing every week. You have to qualify as a starter, because you will never have what happens. I just have to go there and play for free. If I go there with some butterflies, I can strain myself, so I’ll just go there and play for free. ”
