The decommitment bug apparently has bitten Clemson for a second time in the 2021 class. 247Sports reported Tuesday night four-star CB Jordan Hancock of Suwanee, GA has rescinded his pledge to Dabo Swinney and is likely headed to Ohio State. Hancock has not publicly announced a decommitment.
Hancock joins DE Korey Foreman as decommitments from the Clemson class, though Foreman is still considering the Tigers and has them in his top seven.
Hancock was offered by Clemson on January 7th, and at that time he called Clemson his “dream school.” He committed to Clemson March 11th choosing the Tigers at that time over Ohio State, Alabama, Florida State, Georgia and North Carolina. His commitment came just a few days after he had visited for a junior day. He had also visited Clemson in January.
Hancock was Clemson’s 10th commitment for the ’21 class and in his video commitment announcement, he sounded sure of his decision.
“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 has removed from his Twitter page all graphics and pictures related to his Clemson commitment, including his commitment video. His teammate, LB Barrett Carter, remains a Clemson commitment.
Hancock was Clemson’s only commitment for the secondary, and is ranked by 247Sports as the #6 cornerback nationally in the 2021 class. The Tigers now have 13 commitments in the class.
