He's a Dude: Jaron Blossomgame, sophomore forward. The sophomore has really come into his own this season, leading all Clemson players with 13.0 points and 8.4 rebounds per game. As a redshirt freshman, Blossomgame appeared in 33 games, with 30 starts, Clemson's first freshman starter over the course of a season since Demontez Stitt in 2007-08. During his first year with the program, he sat out the season and redshirted due to a broken leg suffered in April as a senior in high school.
