Tanner Muse has signed the financial aid agreement paperwork that will allow him to enroll at Clemson in January. He’s just not sure if that’s what he’ll do.
Muse will be in Clemson this weekend for his official visit along with the Tiger commitments who have signed and planned to enroll early.
“I’m looking forward to getting to there with all the commits, just hanging out and having a good time with family and stuff, it’s more like a family point of things,” Muse told TheClemsonInsider this week.
Before heading down to Clemson, Muse will lead South Point into a second-round playoff battle with Concord
“I feel like I’ve played well,” he said of his senior season. “I’ve prided myself for having to step up, I’ve had to play a lot of running back this year…I’ve been really happy with this year.”
On the offensive ball, Muse has rushed for 996 yards. He’s recorded 88 tackles on defense.
When he gets to Clemson, whether that’s in January or July, Muse will play safety. The decision as to when that will be is still a week or two away.
“I’ve been thinking if I want to stay and finish school, play baseball or come early, but I haven’t really made my decision yet,” Muse said. “I want to talk to my family and coach (Dan) Brooks at the same time and figure out what I really want to do.”
This weekend, Muse would prefer to “just have fun” and not worry about the decision.
“Probably just leaving my family and the whole college thing,” he said, when asked why he’s conflicted about enrolling early, “Just not knowing if that’s what I really want to do or not.”
The 6-4, 205-pound three-star hopes to make an immediate impact when he does get to Clemson.
“I really want to focus on sports and academics. I want to make an impact on the field as early as I can, and also in the classroom,” Muse said.
