The Clemson Insider learned through a source Saturday morning that McMichael’s name was officially placed in the transfer portal.
TCI was able to confirm on Friday the Clemson cornerback was filing the paperwork to have his name added into the transfer portal.
With fall camp beginning on Aug. 1, McMichael was expected to be the No. 2 guy at boundary corner behind junior A.J. Terrell. He is the third Clemson player to transfer from Clemson since the end of spring practice on April. 6
Soon after Clemson’s spring game, running back Tavien Feaster announced he was leaving the team and put his name into the transfer portal. He has since narrowed his search down to Virginia Tech and South Carolina as possible schools he will transfer to once he graduates next month.
