SEC Media Days: Former Vol Cam Clear now a key player at Texas A&M


HOOVER, Alabama — Tight end Cam Clear, dismissed from Tennessee’s football team last summer, is now a key addition to Texas A&M’s roster.

Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin said Clear had “excellent hands, excellent range and excellent mobility.”

Clear was charged with the theft of a laptop from a baseball player at UT. He eventually pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor.

“It hurts anytime a player is dismissed from the program, but there comes a time when a player’s actions dictate that his privilege of being a part of this team should be removed,” then-coach Derek Dooley said in a release. “We will continue to support Cam and his family to help him learn from his actions and become the person and player I believe he has the potential to be.”

Clear spent a year at Arizona Western before reopening his recruitment and signing with Texas A&M.

“After a year at junior college, Clear was hard to miss this spring in Aggieland,” wrote ESPN’s Chris Low. “He’s 270 pounds, catches the ball extremely well and will add another dimension to that offense.”
