Gage Cervenka was a three-star DT prospect out of Greenwood High School largely recognized for his excellent high school wrestling career.

While he wasn't particularly struggling at defensive tackle, the depth chart at the DT is especially star-studded for Clemson. Carlos Watkins, Christian Wilkins, Albert Huggins, Dexter Lawrence, Scott Pagano, and Jabril Robinson are all listed ahead of him.

Conversely on the offensive line, he will train at Center and Guard where there are three players on the field at once instead of just two and only Jay Guillermo, Maverick Morris, Taylor Hearn, and Justin Falcinelli are clearly entrenched in front of him. He remains unlikely to contribute this year, but will have a very good opportunity to begin providing depth in 2017 (with Jay Guillermo's departure).

Coach Swinney believes he is a good fit for the offensive line and the depth chart shows he has a much bigger opportunity to make an impact there. I love the move, but would like to know what you think in the poll and comments below.
