OMAHA, Neb. (WIBW) - In January Clemson senior Donte Grantham tore his ACL, ending his season and career as a Tiger.

"That’s honoring Donte. That’s one of my best friends on the court." said Clemson senior forward Elijah Thomas. "Not having him playing with us at this time, it hurts. We wish he was playing with us."

Grantham appreciates what Thomas is doing for him. "I mean just to know that I put an impact on his life and to the game and him." Grantham said, "for him to still honor me even though I can’t put on the jersey no more. It means a lot.

Thomas says even though his friend’s injury was tough to deal with, he says it allowed other guys to come in and make an impact.
