Position switch at Pitt makes Teaneck’s Clemmings a projected top 10 pick

T.J. Clemmings is one of my athletes for our NFL Scouting Combine Prep

FAIR LAWN – T.J. Clemmings couldn’t get on the field nearly as much as he wanted.

The Teaneck resident’s redshirt sophomore season had just ended and Paul Chryst, then the University of Pittsburgh’s football coach, proposed a position switch. Chryst asked Clemmings to move from defensive end to offensive tackle, a change Clemmings resisted when Pitt’s previous coach, Todd Graham, suggested it.
