Clemson target 5-star OT Tristan Leigh of Fairfax, VA has set January 2nd for his commitment announcement. Leigh has been working with a short list of Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State, Oklahoma, LSU and Florida. He will do his announcement in conjunction with NBC Sports which is doing a special program for commitment announcements in place of the All-American Game which was cancelled due to Covid. Leigh visited Clemson in 2019 for the Florida State game and was back for a junior day in January. He has said he and Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell have developed a close relationship. “I like the culture there. They have a winning culture there. And also, Coach Caldwell, he’s a real dude,” Leighi said earlier this year. Oklahoma also has been particularly strong with Leigh. He made an on-your-on-dime visit there in August. He had planned to do the same with Ohio State in October but had to cancel that visit.
