Korey Foreman

Clemson will hold its annual All-In Cookout Friday night when reportedly top 2020 prospects like DE Jordan Burch, LB Justin Flowe, WR Ajou AJou and WR EJ Williams will be on campus. But there will be another major target on campus Thursday, the first day of the new live recruiting period that runs thru Wednesday.

2021 DE Korey Foreman (6-4 245) of Corona, CA arrived in South Carolina Wednesday night with his mentor and the two will be on the Clemson campus around 11:00 AM Thursday. They plan to spend all day with the Tigers before moving on to see Georgia, Alabama and LSU while on this trip. This will be Foreman’s first visit to Clemson.

“I just want to see the relationship from within,” Foreman said. “I want to experience the environment. I want to have a good time. And I want to talk to the coaches. I don’t want to go there and feel I can’t talk to nobody and ask questions about the place.  I don’t really have anything to expect because from the people that have gone there, they have told me you can’t go in there expecting something because they are going to meet the bar, if not higher.”

Clemson defensive line coaches Todd Bates and Lemanski Hall have been recruiting Foreman, and he says he talks to them every other day. He’s also watched the Clemson defense closely to see how he might fit in.

“I noticed they run a four-front and we run that at my high school,” he said.  “That’s real interesting to me. That’s the only thing I’ve looked into was their D-line and their defense.  I didn’t really look into the schooling part of it yet.”

Foreman also has visited schools in his area like Southern Cal, UCLA and Oregon. And he plans to return to Clemson for a game this season. He doesn’t have a timeline on a decision. That will happen when it feels right.

“For me to commit, it would have to be with my parents,” Forman said.  “If I feel a school is good, they want to be able to feel that to.  When I commit, it will be out of the blue.”

Some of Foreman’s other major offers are Florida, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Tennessee, Ohio State, Nebraska, Auburn, Penn State, Washington State, Washington, Arizona and Arizona State.
