Former Clemson wide receiver Amari Rodgers has seen enough of NIL and the transfer portal. The former Clemson wideout tweeted that he was 'glad' he was done with college before NIL and the Transfer Portal took off.

Rodgers’ feelings are not dissimilar from fans around the country as over 1,100 players entered the portal on Day 1 this year, largely driven by NIL deals.

Notes from Rodgers’ bio on ClemsonTigers.com

Consummate professional, figuratively speaking, who was a key figure in Clemson’s four straight College Football Playoff berths from 2017-20 … earned starting roles at receiver and punt returner in 2018 and contributed in those roles in 2019 after a remarkable comeback from injury and then recorded a career year as a senior in 2020 … concluded career with 181 career receptions for 2,144 yards with 15 receiving touchdowns in 1,901 snaps over 55 career games (37 starts) … also credited with 68 career punt returns for 529 yards (7.8 avg.) including a punt return touchdown … became only the fifth Clemson player since 2000 to record touchdowns by rush, reception and punt return in a career … at a program that has routinely produced outstanding pro talent in recent years, completed his tenure ranked sixth in Clemson’s history in career receptions, 12th in career receiving yards and tied for 14th in career receiving touchdowns, as well as ninth in career punt return yards.
