CLEMSON, S.C. - The Clemson Athletic Communications office announced today the hiring of Nik Conklin as Coordinator of Digital Content.

Conklin graduated from Long Island University in Brooklyn, N.Y. in May 2012 with a degree in media arts and English, and earned four varsity letters with the Blackbirds' men's soccer program.
