Clemson Coach Apologizes For Recruiting Joke

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson's defensive coordinator has apologized for jokes he made about Alabama's recruiting practices.

Fourth-year assistant Vic Koenning says he was joking with reporters Monday night when he discussed seeing high-profile Alabama receivers Julio Jones and B.J. Scott each driving a Cadillac Escalade.

Koenning apologized Tuesday, saying he does not make it a practice to worry about other teams' recruiting and has never had any problem with Alabama's practices.

Ninth-ranked Clemson faces the 24th-ranked Crimson Tide Saturday night in Atlanta.
