Coastal Carolina new home for ex-Clemson DT Sterling Johnson

For the second time this month, a transferring Clemson defensive lineman has found a new college football home.

On his personal Twitter account late last week, Sterling Johnson (pictured, No. 93) indicated that he would be moving on and continuing his playing career at Coastal Carolina. As Johnson left the Tigers as a graduate transfer, he will be eligible to play for the Sun Belt Conference school in 2018.

Not only that, the defensive tackle will have another year of eligibility that he can use in 2019.

A three-star member of the Tigers’ 2015 recruiting class, Johnson was rated as the No. 29 defensive tackle in the country and the No. 16 player at any position in the state of North Carolina. After redshirting as a true freshman, Robinson played in 11 games the past two seasons.

In early February, Johnson announced his decision to transfer from the ACC school

On May 10, West Virginia confirmed that Jabril Robinson, the defensive tackle who transferred from the Tigers in late January, had been signed by the Mountaineers.
