In what can only be described as a shocking turn of events, based on the projections by the recruiting website experts, Clemson missed on their number one quarterback target in the 2024 class when Walker White of Little Rock, AR announced for Auburn. White took a visit to Clemson last Saturday for their major junior day, and the reporting by Clemson media suggested strongly that White would commit to those Tigers. Clemson was also thought to have an advantage through new offensive coordinator Garrett Riley who had recruited White previously while at TCU. Projections by 247Sports and On3 concurred. 247 analysts gave Clemson a 75% chance for White and On3 had it at 88.2%. Over the last two seasons White passed for 4000 yards and 48 touchdowns with 20 interceptions. He also rushed for over 1300 yards and 21 touchdowns.
