Anna Hickey, who covers Clemson football and recruiting for 247Sports, joined Host of "Southern Fried Sports" Travis Reier to talk some ball and discuss if there's still any of his alma mater left in Clemson's Dabo Swinney.

"Oh there's absolutely some Alabama left in there," Hickey told Reier. "Now if you are asking if he will potentially return to his alma mater to coach down the line when Nick Saban retires, I think that's a whole other story."

You can listen to Reier and Hickey's full conversation in the video above as they dived into and discussed whether Swinney would potentially return to coach at the University of Alabama after Nick Saban retires, expectations for Clemson heading into the season, and much more.

"You can never say never," Hickey told Reier. "But he's made Clemson his home. His three boys have been raised there, he's built multiple homes there, and he's winning obviously at the highest level beating Alabama doing it. But, he definitely has Alabama in him."
