Perhaps now Hunter Renfrow is the face of the “little guys” of college football.
The Clemson receiver out of Socastee recently was the centerpiece of a CBS Sports article chronicling the emergence of guys like him: undersized pass catchers who make a big impact.
The article, headlined “Little guys can play, too: How slot WRs like Hunter Renfrow are changing football,” quotes several college football coaches and Oklahoma State star quarterback Mason Rudolph, an S.C. native who knows Renfrow.
He's a baller, man. You see him and he's an Average Joe, but he plays his butt off.

The story references the way the NFL’s New England Patriots have utilized receivers of similar build to the slight 5-foot-10, 180 Renfrow. It also provides some coaches’ takes on the controversial “pick” play that helped Renfrow haul in the game-winning touchdown against Alabama in the National Championship Game in January.
