Clemson DT Wilkins returning for senior year

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Clemson's heart, soul and power on defense is intact next season with defensive tackle Christian Wilkins' choice to hold off on the NFL and return to the Tigers.

Wilkins was the last holdout among three draft-eligible underclassmen along the defensive front - all who were projected first-round picks in some mock NFL drafts - to decide to come back to school. On Saturday, defensive ends Clelin Ferrell and Austin Bryant announced their intentions to play at Clemson next year.

Wilkins drew things out a bit longer, waiting until a few hours before the NFL deadline at midnight Monday to tell coaches he'd be back, too.
