Former Clemson DL Charged With Second Crime

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) – Former Clemson defensive end Ebenezer Ogundeko has been arrested a second time in three months, charged last week with third degree assault and battery by the Oconee County Sheriff’s Department.

Ogundeko was dismissed from the team by Clemson coach Dabo Swinney in May after the sophomore was charged with financial transactional fraud.

Ogundeko was arrested this past Friday for an incident that took place in March, according to the sheriff’s department.

He posted a bond of $1,092 and faces a trial date of Aug. 20.

The 19-year-old Ogundeko is from Brooklyn, New York and was considered the state’s top-rated defensive end when he signed with Clemson. He had five tackles in reserve duty last season, but was expected to make a bigger impact on the line this fall.

He has since transferred to Tennessee State.
