Clemson Football: WR Charone Peake granted medical waiver, extra year of eligibility


The Clemson Tigers, with the losses they’ve sustained to the NFL Draft, are going to need all the help on the offensive side of the ball that they can get this season, and they got some big help with that recently as wide receiver Charone Peake was granted a medical waiver, giving him another year of eligibility, according to College Football Talk.

Clemson announced late last week that Charone Peakehas won his appeal and been granted a medical hardship waiver.  Peake will now have two years of eligibility remaining.

Peake was a starter during the 2013 season, but a torn ACL suffered in the second game of the season left him out for the year and subsequently seeking this ruling.

Clemson loses both Sammy Watkins and Martavis Bryant off the receiving corps, so having Peake back with his experience, and healthy, will be a huge boost, especially since they also have to break in a new quarterback with the loss of Tajh Boyd as well.
