Dabo Swinney had nothing but positive things to say about transferring linebacker Sergio Allen.

Allen entered the transfer portal on Monday after Saturday’s game against Furman. Allen left Clemson prior to the 3rd game of the season.

Swinney spoke about Allen’s early season departure from the program.

“Not much reaction– 2022. Great kid. Love him,” Swinney said.

In Saturday’s win over Furman, Allen registered 2 tackles. That was his 1st game of the season, as he did not play in the season opener against Georgia Tech in Atlanta.

Allen, a junior, was in his 3rd season at the school. In 2021, Allen played in 9 games and recorded six tackles. He split time as a reserve linebacker and a special teams player. He finished his time at Clemson with 11 tackles in 15 games.

Before he came to Clemson, he was a 4-star recruit and the country’s No. 12 inside linebacker in the Class of 2020, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.

Allen will have time to make a decision on his next destination in college football. He will have 3 years of eligibility remaining.

Clemson will be back in action against Louisiana Tech on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET.
