Clemson WR Peake gets medical redshirt
March 28, 2014
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Injured Clemson wide receiver Charone Peake was granted a medical waiver to restore his eligibility after missing most of last season.
The school announced Peake's status Friday. The 6-foot-2 Peake was a starting receiver for the Tigers last fall, but was hurt just two games in when he tore a knee ligament in a September practice. He needed surgery and was out for Clemson's last 11 games. Peake had been the team's second-leading receiver with eight catches for 84 yards and a touchdown when he was hurt.
Peake was considered the equal of Clemson star Sammy Watkins when both were freshmen in 2011.
Peake will have two more years remaining with the Tigers. He's expected to contend for a lead receiving spot that Watkins gave up to turn pro.
