Cause of Fuller's death has not yet been announced.
Former Clemson Tigers running back CJ Fuller has died at the age of 22, the school confirmed Wednesday night. Clemson did not announce the cause of Fuller's death.
"Our thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathies are with C.J.'s family," Tigers coach Dabo Swinney said in a statement. "I've known C.J. a long time and watched him grow up through the Easley rec leagues [in South Carolina] all the way through Easley High School. I'm proud of what he accomplished as a Clemson Tiger, most of all his accomplishment of being a Clemson graduate. Our deepest condolences and the thoughts of our program are with his family this evening. May he rest in peace."
Fuller was a member of the Tigers from 2015-17 and had appeared in 43 games for Clemson, including their championship season in 2016. During the College Football Playoffs that year, Fuller scored on a 30-yard touchdown reception against Ohio State in the semifinals. In the National Championship against Alabama he returned a kickoff 20 yards to set up the Tigers' 68-yard game-winning drive. He finished his Clemson career with 599 rushing yards, 155 receiving yards and six touchdowns.
