Crawford, Anthony to stay at Clemson

By Andrea Adelson

Clemson received some good news Wednesday when linebacker Stephone Anthony and defensive end Corey Crawford announced they would return to school for their senior seasons.

There is still no word, however, on whether defensive end Vic Beasley will make the jump to the NFL.

Anthony led the Tigers with 131 total tackles, the most tackles by a Clemson player since Leroy Hill had 145 in 2003. Anthony also ranked second on the team in tackles for loss with 13.5 and added four sacks and an interception.

Crawford finished the season with 52 tackles, including 10.5 for loss. He also led the team in quarterback pressures with 16 and added three sacks and four passes deflected.

Clemson previously announced receivers Sammy Watkins and Martavis Bryant and cornerback Bashaud Breeland would leave school early to turn pro.
