Clemson defensive end Xavier Thomas announced Saturday night that he will be returning to Clemson next season. 
“It is truly a blessing to have an opportunity for the 2022 NFL draft,” he said, “However, I am very aware of my potential and there is A LOT more work to do. Patience is a virtue, and I refuse to sell myself short. LET’S RUN IT BACK.”
Thomas finished the 2021 season with 3.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. 
Although eligible for the 2022 NFL draft, Thomas will now come back as a fifth year player along with KJ Henry. With both Thomas and Henry returning, Clemson will essentially return the entire starting defensive line with defensive tackle Tyler Davis still potentially leaving for the NFL. 
Davis will have until Monday to declare for the NFL draft.
