The Clemson Tigers are making waves in the NCAA transfer portal, and all eyes are on linebacker Elijah Herring as a potential addition to their roster.

Many have started projecting that the Tigers could be a favorite to land the intriguing linebacker.

With Herring’s impressive track record as a tackling machine, coupled with his knack for pressuring plays as a blitzer, he could bring a dynamic edge to Clemson’s defense.

Currently, the Tigers find themselves thin and inexperienced at middle linebacker, creating an opportunity for Herring to make a significant impact. While Kobe McCloud and incoming freshman Sammy Brown hold promise, Herring’s proven capabilities could offer a stabilizing force in the heart of Clemson’s defense.

Moreover, Herring’s compatibility with Clemson’s defensive strategy, known for its utilization of exotic pressure packages involving linebackers, makes him an even more enticing prospect for the Tigers.

However, securing Herring’s commitment may require Clemson to pivot towards actively pursuing transfers, as they stand as the sole Power 5 school yet to make a transfer signing this offseason.

If the Clemson Tigers successfully land Herring, it could signify a pivotal move in fortifying their defensive prowess and strengthening their competitive edge in the NCAA landscape.
