Clemson now has to look at what options are left as far as defensive linemen go in the 2022 class after a huge miss on one of the top players in the country.
The Tigers have been waiting anxiously to see if they would beat out the Tarheels for Travis Shaw. The five star defensive lineman out of Grimsley High School in Greensboro, NC kept his commitment decision tight lipped right up until his announcement, as he decided to stay in-state and attend the University of North Carolina on Saturday.
This was a huge win by the Tarheels and a major loss by the Tigers, who to this point have been on a recruiting tear over the summer. Other schools that were vying for the 6-foot-5, 310-pound defensive linemen were Georgia and North Carolina A&T.
Now that Shaw’s decision has been made, the question becomes what does Clemson decide to do now. You can believe that this coaching staff has already been planning for all scenarios and have been working on it already.
Four star Hero Kanu has an offer. This 6-foot-5, 293-pounder out of Santa Margarita Catholic High School in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA recently put out his top nine schools that included the Tigers.
Although, while he has Clemson in his top nine it is important to keep in mind that he will not be making an official visit there. The writing is on the wall with Kanu.
Caden Curry out Center Grove High School in Greenwood, IN also has an offer and attended the Elite Retreat. The 6-foot-5, 250-pound defensive lineman is a four star and is being looked at hard by Ohio State, Alabama, Indiana, and Oregon. The Tigers made Curry’s final five but Ohio State is the favorite.
