Former Clemson running back CJ Fuller died, according to Easley High School officials. 

Fuller was a running back at Clemson through last season after starring at Easley High School.

Details of his death are not known at this time. 

Fuller lettered as a running back at Clemson from 2015 to 2017. He scored the first touchdown of the 2017 season in the win over Kent State.

He was also on Clemson’s National Championship Team in 2016, and caught a touchdown pass in their semi-final win against Ohio State University.

He announced he would be transferring to another school in the winter of 2017.

Fuller was a standout player at Easley High School, where he rushed over 3,300 yards and had 27 touchdowns.

He’d intended to play his final season of college football elsewhere this season, but was charged with a crime after leaving the Clemson program.
