Colin Sadler Recaps First Career Start, Talks Competition at LT With Tristan Leigh

After making his first career start in Clemson’s 48-14 win over FAU, offensive lineman Colin Sadler met with the media for the very first time. The second-year player talked about what he learned while redshirting last season, as well as the competition at LT between himself and Tristan Leigh.

What We Heard

  • Sadler said redshirting last year gave him a “good chance to acclimate, get his feet under him and build a solid base.”
  • Sadler called his first career start “surreal.” He said he felt like he had a “good performance,” but obviously still has room to improve.
  • Sadler said it is “hard” to view his competition with Tristan Leigh as a “battle” because of how highly he thinks of his teammate.
  • On his recruiting process, Sadler said Clemson kind of “came out of nowhere, and took off really fast.” He visited and was so impressed with how the program handles its business off the field. Despite growing up in Greenville, Sadler did not grow up a Clemson fan. “I never really rooted for anybody.”
  • “Chemistry is huge with the offensive line,” the redshirt sophomore said. He noted the chemistry with this group will continue to develop throughout the season.
  • Sadler was a teammate of WR Tyler Brown in high school. “I just remember him as a quiet guy.”
