Brother of Clemson's Mullen hoping to hear more from Tigers

Coconut Creek (Fla.) 2019 cornerback Tiawan Mullen, the brother of Clemson freshman corner Trayvon Mullen, is enjoying a productive season as a sophomore.

Mullen has intercepted four passes and returned two of them for touchdowns while notching 30 tackles.

“My season is going great,” Mullen told The Clemson Insider.

Mullen is receiving early interest from several schools, he said.

“Rutgers, Auburn, Mississippi State and a couple others,” Mullen said.

Has Mullen heard much from Clemson?

“Not yet,” Mullen said, “but hopefully.”

Clemson appeals to Mullen on several levels.

“I like the atmosphere. It’s fantastic,” Mullen said. “They are welcoming, treat you just like family, and the stadium is great.”

As a true freshman, the older Mullen has played 64 snaps through eight games at Clemson this season, recording eight tackles, a quarterback hurry and an additional tackle on special teams.

“I think my brother is doing great,” Tiawan said of Trayvon, “because when he gets in he makes the best of it and makes plays for his team.

“And the Tigers are doing great. They are doing great.”

Tiawan has been to Miami and Florida State this season. He doesn’t have any upcoming visits planned right now.

The 5-foot-10, 160-pounder is focused on finishing his season strongly.

“My goals for the rest of the season are to keep helping my team,” Tiawan said, “and keep getting better.”
