Hunter Renfrow, Clemson: Redshirt Senior (5’10/180)
Hunter Renfrow is commonly referred to as “Mr. Reliable,” and for A good reason: he does not drop catches. Renfrow did not always get the respect and props that he gets today after an illustrious career in Death Valley. Renfrow played quarterback in high school and was rated as a two star prospect, receiving offers to play football and baseball at schools such as Appalachian State and Gardner-Webb.

Renfrow decided to double down and bet on himself and enrolled at Clemson as a walk-on and would red shirt as a freshman. After sitting for a year to put on muscle to be able to compete at the ACC level, Renfrow earned himself a full scholarship after adding on roughly 20 pounds of muscle.
In four seasons Renfrow played in 53 games, including three national championship games, winning two of them and making the game winning touchdown catch in one. Renfrow would go on to log 186 receptions for 2,133 yards and 15 scores.
Renfrow is the type of guy that is far from prototypical size and speed, but the heart, determination and effort he brings on a daily basis cannot be taught and is hard to find. Renfrow will likely be a day-three selection but can be a player that comes in and earns snaps from day one. Renfrow projects as a Cole Beasley type and should have a long and productive career as a slot wide receiver.
