The Clemson athletic department has taken a secondary role in the appeal process for three football players the NCAA suspended for failed drug tests. In December, defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence, tight end Braden Galloway and offensive lineman Zach Giella tested positive on an NCAA-administered drug screening for trace amounts of ostarine. The players were suspended from the Cotton Bowl and the CFP National Championship Game. They face an additional one-year ban. Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich said the players’ attorney is spearheading the appeal, with the university’s Office of General Counsel assisting. Radakovich said he receives periodic updates on the progress, but neither he nor his staff have any direct knowledge of the proceedings. The Office of General Counsel declined in a phone call a request to comment on the appeal process. -Manie Robinson, The Greenville News. Read More.
