Clemson Star Abruptly Quits Football
A Clemson star abruptly quit football this week.
Defensive end Logan Rudolph revealed on Thursday that he is officially done.
Despite having two years of football eligibility left, Rudolph has decided to go in a different direction.
According to Anna Hickey of Clemson247, he will reportedly pursue an acting career instead.
Rudolph, whose older brother Mason is a backup quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, made the announcement on Instagram.
“After I made that funny video announcing my decision to sign my letter of intent with Dabo Swinney and the Clemson Tigers, I had no idea the impact,” he said.
“Three conference championships, three College Football Playoffs, a national championship. Coaches, teammates, friendships that I know will last a lifetime.
“Every day I put that helmet on I tried to compete in a way that made Clemson University proud.
“As I close out this next chapter of my football career and graduate in May, I just want say thank you to those who supported us, inspired us and cheered us on. I’ll always be a Clemson Tiger.”
In 2019 Rudolph recorded 26 tackles, one sack, one pass break-up and one fumble recovery for a touchdown in nine outings.
Over the course of his time in Clemson he recorded 42 tackles in 31 total outings.
