A new offer is out for Clemson Football

CJ Kubah-Taylor announced an offer from Clemson Football yesterday.

Kubah-Taylor is a linebacker who is on his official visit to Clemson this weekend. The Early Signing Day is December 20th.

Shortly after Kubah-Taylor made the announcement, Jason Priester from All Clemson Tigers posted a familiar message.

For those who don’t follow Priester, the shades mean that he is projecting a player to commit to Clemson. The timing of this one is fairly demonstrative.

Xavier Thomas will play in an all-star game

The East/West Shrine Bowl has announced that Clemson Football defensive end Xavier Thomas has accepted an invitation to play in this season's game.

Thomas had 24 total tackles, 2 sacks, and 1 fumble recovery in 2023. He has 115 tackles and 16.5 sacks for his Clemson career, which dates back to 2018. He did miss much of that time due to COVID and injuries. He has confirmed that he will play in the Gator Bowl, and it would be great to see another Thomas sack or two.

Andy Katz announced his list of the top men’s basketball players in the nation, and a familiar name showed up in the Top 10.

PJ Hall is averaging 20.1 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 2.3 blocks per game for this season.
