After struggling with injuries and eventually taking a medical redshirt last season, Ruke Orhorhoro is finally starting to make his mark on the Clemson defense.

After filling in admirably for an unavailable Tyler Davis, in what was his first career start in the season-opening loss to Georgia, Orhorhoro turned in what was arguably his best performance to date against S.C. State. The third-year defensive tackle was credited with a team-high six tackles, including two tackles for loss, and was named one of the team's defensive players of the game.
