Blood runs thick in the Clemson family, and that could definitely help its recruiting class in 2019.
In addition to Tyus Fields (younger brother of cornerback Mark Fields), Trayvon Mullen’s younger brother Tiawan could have the Tigers as contenders come decision time.
The 5-foot-10, 160-pound cornerback told The Clemson Insider that he plans on visiting several schools throughout this coming football season. Louisville, Michigan State, Oregon and Clemson all look to be the top places he wants to visit for a game day this year.
The Coconut Creek, Fla., product is not sure which game he will be attending yet, but he will most definitely be at Death Valley sometime during the season. In addition to his big brother, Tiawan Mullen also has a good connection with freshman wide receiver Amari Rodgers.
“I talk to Rodgers time to time. That’s my boy,” he said. “We just talk about just being great and humble. He tells me how Clemson is a great place.”
Michigan State and Louisville are showing Mullen the most interest in addition to a few smaller schools. While he has not received a Clemson offer yet, Mullen said they will have a good chance to become one of his favorites if they start to ramp up its interest.
“They have a high chance in my decision so I am just staying humble until they come… Just show me love and treat me like family, just the simple things and have a good relationship with them,” said Mullen.
If the Tigers do send him and offer in the near future, Mullen thinks he would fit in well with their defensive scheme alongside his brother.
“I can play any coverage… I like how Coach (Brent) Venables plays with the defense,” he said.
Mullen and the Tigers still have plenty of time to develop their relationship as he will not narrow down his recruitment until well into this season.
