Clemson Men’s Basketball at Florida State: 4:00 PM in Tallahassee, Florida – The Tigers are reeling from a difficult January. You can read our game preview from Marty Coleman here.

Clemson Football has been actively offering 2024 preferred walk-ons, and one announced yesterday that he had accepted.

Parker Fulghum is a wide receiver from Evangel Christian Academy in Shreveport, Louisiana. He chose Clemson over a scholarship offer from Northwestern State.

Soon after Clark Sanderson committed to the Tigers. He is a wide receiver from Mountain Brook High School in Alabama.

Earlier this week Clemson offered Joseph Roberto, a linebacker prospect who plays at IMG Academy in Florida. Roberto has multiple DI offers, including Maryland and Georgia Tech.

Some fans scoff at walk-ons, but they play important roles on a team, primarily during game prep. Some do make big impacts like Hunter Renfrow or play roles on Saturday, but most of their contributions happen behind the scenes.

Clemson Women’s Lacrosse has named Shannon Brazier, Bella D’Gracia, Ella Little, and Kerri Thornton as captains for the upcoming 2024 season.

Little was recently recognized by USA Lacrosse as a preseason All-America honorable mention along with Hanna Hilcoff.

The Tigers start their second season against the Davidson Wildcats on February 10th. They will be opening a brand new 1,000-seat stadium.
