3 Questions about Clemson Football cornerbacks this spring

The cornerback room isn't flush with experience in 2024, but that doesn't mean there isn't talent.

Are any freshmen going to contribute?

After the top five players, all the remaining options for Reed are true freshmen. They are well-regarded true freshmen, but true freshmen nonetheless.

The heralded member of that bunch is Corian Gipson, who was a 4-star in the 247Sports Composite and ranked 79th overall in the nation. His commitment over home-state program Texas was a big recruiting win for the Tigers. Gipson is an early enrollee but is not a full participant this spring due to an injury during his senior season in high school.

Ashley Hampton, from Tallahassee, Florida, is not an early enrollee and will arrive in the summer.

The third member of the cornerback class, Tavoy Feagin, is in spring practice, and the few early comments we’ve seen/heard are that he is a hard worker who is taking practice seriously.

To be secure at cornerback, the Tigers will need Gipson and Feagin to get ready fast, the same way Terrell and Lewis did in 2023.
