Clemson is looking for one running back for the 2018 class and two on the board right now are Lyn-J Dixon of Butler, GA and Jashaun Corbin of Rockledge, GA. Dixon, a former Tennessee commitment, made his official visit to Clemson November 17th. He will visit Louisville and Oklahoma State the next two weekends and Alabama in January.
Corbin, who decommitted from Florida State December 3rd and before that Tennessee in May, has taken an official visit to Oregon and has one scheduled with Clemson for December 15th.
“Clemson has always been one of my favorite schools since I started getting recruiting by big time schools,” Corbin said. “Their interest is pretty strong. They are only taking one running back in the class. Just to know that I’m one of those guys that they are looking out really says a lot.”
Corbin has been in touch with Clemson running backs coach Tony Elliott. He’s expecting the coaches to visit him after he takes his official visit. Corbin, who made an unofficial visit in April, said he already has a solid impression regarding the program.
“They are a big time family, everything is family oriented,” he said. “They normally have a pretty good back every year, and they get their running backs in space, give them the ball and make plays, so I feel like it’s somewhere I could fit in.”
Corbin said he will also visit Southern Cal and Florida State in January. TCU and Nebraska are two other schools that have been in to see him this month.
“I owe it to myself to take some official because it’s something I’ve worked on so I feel like I should take them. I’ll take all my officials and see what goes on from there.”
Corbin was moved to quarterback four games into the season and rushed for over 1000 yards and had 700 passing yards. He said he had over 2300 all purpose yards.
