Some of Hancock’s other offers were USC, Florida, LSU, Georgia, North Carolina, Texas, Oklahoma, Michigan, Auburn, Texas A&M, Oregon and Stanford.

In his announcement video produced by Rivals, Hancock said he chose Clemson over Ohio State, Alabama, Florida State, Georgia and North Carolina.

“I think Clemson is the right fit for me and my family where I can take that next step in academics and as a player as a defensive back,” Hancock said. “I knew Clemson was the right choice for me when I put on the Clemson orange. I knew this is the school for me, this is where I want to go. And it’s the best school in America.”

Hancock gives Clemson 10 commitments for the 2021 class and is the firt commitment for the secondary. The 247Sports composite ranking has him as the #6 corner in the country and the #9 prospect in Georgia.
