Clemson Football: Can Joseph Ngata and Other Receivers Save The Season?

The Clemson football team’s still licking their wounds after the College Football Playoff Semi-finals loss to Ohio State, last season. The team made college football news when Clemson’s offense was no match for fifth-ranked Georgia, in the 2021 opening season 10-3 loss. Clemson failed to make several critical plays while Georgia capitalized on them. Boasting six consecutive ACC titles and six trips to the college football playoffs made no difference to the start of the 2021 college football season.

Joseph Ngata, a junior wide receiver, has accounted for more than half of the team’s offense, 180 yards, catching six passes for 110 yards, in the season opener. Although being limited to practice time due to injury and Covid-19, he has been identified as a very productive player in the 2021 season, thus far.

He made six catches in 83 yards, in Clemson’s spring game, giving us a glimpse of what’s to come. With 3, 682 receiving yards, 55 touchdowns in 42 games, and only six games in which he did not reach the end zone, Joseph Ngata, was a five-star prospect at Folsom High School in California.

And this season is no exception.  Along with Joseph Ngata, Justyn Ross and E.J Williams are two other top players to keep an eye on this season. E.J Williams has had a pretty respectable freshman season impressing spectators with his brilliant catch against Notre Dame in the ACC Championship game. While Justyn Ross has already been named for the Biletnikoff Award watch list.
