SEC Expansion: Clemson President Denies Report Of Potential Move To SEC

Now that Texas A&M has made its intentions clear that it wants to join the SEC, the league has been looking around trying to find a team to become its 14th in the conference. Thus far, there have been public denials issued by Missouri and Florida State. Now, you can add Clemson to that list.

Clemson president James Barker told The Post and Courier in Charleston that the school has not been in touch with the SEC at all during the process. He added that the school remains "committed" to the ACC. Clemson's name originally came up in an ESPN report suggesting the league was looking to expand to 16 teams and had targeted Florida State, Missouri and Clemson. An SEC official strongly denied the report to Pete Thamel of the New York Times.

Given the SEC's preference to have 14 teams and not simply add only Texas A&M, it appears this whole process still has a ways to go before a resolution is met.

Keep an eye on SEC expansion chatter over at Team Speed Kills and SB Nation Atlanta.
