Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said All-American receiver Sammy Watkins is working hard to redeem himself after last spring's drug arrest.
Watkins was pulled over during a traffic stop and found to have a bag of marijuana and two pills he didn't have a prescription for. He was charged with two counts of possession, both misdemeanor charges.
Watkins was eligible for a pretrial intervention program as a first time offender.
Swinney said this week Watkins understood his mistake and is doing the things he must this off-season to regain the trust of his teammates and coaches after his mistake.
Swinney has said Watkins will miss game time as part of his punishment for the arrest.
The Tigers open the season at the Georgia Dome against Auburn on Sept. 1.
