Early Signing Period opens today

The Early Signing Period for college football opens today and remains open through Friday.

The Tigers currently have 20 verbal commitments, and a few more could be announced today. Elyjah Thurmon and Mason Wade are the most likely to select the Tigers.

There is an outside chance that Eddrick Houston could flip from Ohio State, but that is not the most likely outcome.

Three Tigers selected in MLS SuperDraft

Clemson Men’s Soccer had three members drafted by the MLS on Tuesday night.

Brandon Parrish was drafted by DC United in the second round.

Ousmane Sylla was next to Houston Dynamo FC in the second round.

Transfer Portal Updates

Clemson Football target Addison Nichols committed to Arkansas.

Former Clemson Football safety Landen Zanders has decided to return to football and entered his name into the transfer portal.

Injuries derailed Zanders’ career with the Tigers, and he elected to retire. Now that he has had a chance to recover, he understandably wants to take advantage of his remaining eligibility.

Defensive end David Ojiegbe has decided to transfer to Pittsburgh. Ojiegbe is from the Washington DC area, so this destination is closer to home.
