Artavis Scott not at media day, expected to rejoin Clemson Tigers later today



TAMPA - Clemson receiver and former East Lake High standout Artavis Scott was not at Saturday's media day because he was serving as a pallbearer in his grandfather's funeral.

Scott, the Tigers' all-time leader in receptions, is expected to rejoin the team in time for the group photo and be at practice later today, coach Dabo Swinney said.

"He's great," Swinney said at Amalie Arena during media day for Monday's College Football Playoff national title game. "He really has been an unbelievable player for us. Everyone talks about Deshaun (Watson), but Artavis graduated in three years, too. Three years, he's the leading receiver in the history of Clemson. We all know there's been some great ones come through. This young man is an incredibly underrated football player. He has grown as a man and has a bright future."
