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.
