Clemson CB to honor UConn’s Howard

Clemson cornerback Chris Chancellor will wear the No. 6 of Connecticut’s Jasper Howard, his high school teammate who was stabbed to death on Sunday.

Chancellor was on the Miami Edison Senior High team with Howard in 2003 and 2004.

Chancellor asked Tigers coach Dabo Swinney if he could switch to Howard’s number instead of his usual No. 38 when Clemson takes on No. 8 Miami on Saturday.

Chancellor says he has spoken with many former high school teammates and his former coach since Howard’s death.
