Clemson RB Buice to transfer

Clemson redshirt freshman running back Demont Buice has decided to leave the team and plans to transfer at the end of the semester, Clemson announced on Monday. Buice met with Clemson coach Dabo Swinney on Monday.

“We hate to see Demont leave our program,” Swinney said in a prepared statement. “We were pleased with his progress, but he wants more immediate playing time so he will transfer at the end of the semester. We have granted him a release and wish him the best.”

Buice redshirted the 2010 season. He had an outstanding spring game with 102 yards on 18 carries. He missed the Troy game with an injury, but played each of the last five games on special teams and had two tackles.
