Tigers keeping an eye on 4-star RB Jashaun Corbin
Jashaun Corbin thought he found his fit when he committed to Tennessee in April.
But the four-star running back from Rockledge (Fla.) backed out of his pledge the following month. It didn’t take him long to find a new home, as less than a week later he gave a verbal commitment to Florida State.
So what is the status of Corbin’s current commitment?
“It’s firm,” he told The Clemson Insider, “but I still want to visit other schools.”
Corbin, who is ranked as a top-10 all-purpose back in the 2018 class, has a few official visits lined up.
“I’m visiting Oregon this weekend,” he said. “I’m visiting USC (Southern Cal) and FSU in January. That’s all I have planned so far.”
Clemson — which is still looking for a running back to fill its lone spot at the position this cycle — has communicated with Corbin of late.
According to Corbin, the Tigers are taking a patient approach with his recruitment as they wait for a decision from top running back target Lyn-J Dixon, who took an official visit to Clemson last weekend.
“I think they were waiting to see what the other running back was going to do since he visited this past weekend,” Corbin said.
Clemson began contacting Corbin in the spring. The interest was mutual, and Corbin made a visit to Clemson in April before speaking highly of his experience in an interview with TCI afterward.
Corbin plans to sign in February. Should the Tigers opt to make a move for him before then, Corbin said he would be strongly interested.
“It would be high,” he said. “Clemson has been one of my top schools since they started recruiting me.”
Corbin is ranked as a top-200 prospect in his class regardless of position. As a senior this season, he recorded more than 2,250 all-purpose yards and scored 23 touchdowns.
