Early Signing Day is this Wednesday. It is often a quiet day for Clemson Football but nothing seems very settled down quite yet.

We got confirmation from multiple sources that Eddrick Houston was on campus this past weekend.

Houston is a 5-star defensive end prospect in the 247Sports Composite. He verbally committed to Ohio State in August but he apparently decided to make a few last visits.

Clemson has brought in Chris Rumph to coach the defensive ends. Rumph has NFL experience and I wouldn’t be surprised to know that Houston wanted to have a conversation with Rumph before signing day.

We have several small bits of information regarding transfers that popped up over the weekend. Clemson Football’s Sage Ennis announced his new destination.

Ennis is from Tallahassee, Florida, so this truly is going home for him.

We’ve been wondering if wide receiver was on the list for Clemson Football to pull from the portal, but so far all we have heard about is offensive linemen.

We now have our first indicator that Clemson has reached out to a wide receiver. Tulane’s Chris Brazell that Clemson is one of the schools that has reached out to him since he entered the portal.

Texas A&M offensive lineman Chase Bisontis made a similar claim that Clemson reached out to him, and then we didn’t hear anything more about it. That could be the case with Brazell as well: they had a conversation and both moved on quickly.

This is, however, the first public confirmation that Clemson has communicated with a transfer wide receiver.

South Carolina running back Mario Henderson has announced that he is transferring to the Memphis Tigers.

Juice Wells also has a new school.

Lastly, an ACC opponent found their quarterback for next season. Ohio State’s Kyle McCord will be transferring to Syracuse.

Clemson Football alum Trevor Lawrence set a new personal best with the longest touchdown pass of his career, a 65-yard pass to Jamal Agnew.

Unfortunately for Lawrence and the Jaguars, this was the only highlight as Baltimore beat Jacksonville 23-7.
