GREENVILLE -- Athletics officials say Clemson safety DeAndre McDaniel will be allowed to compete for the Tigers this year.
The school announced that McDaniel will be placed on deferred suspension following his June arrest on aggravated assault and battery charges. He will be suspended if he fails to meet requirements of an intervention program for first-time offenders.
According to a police incident report, McDaniel's girlfriend told police he covered her head with a comforter, punched her and pushed her down a flight of stairs.
McDaniel has remained in school and on the football team since his arrest.
