Report: Top-ranked prospect in 2021 class decommits from Clemson
The top-ranked prospect in the 2021 recruiting class is back on the market.
On Tuesday, Grace Raynor of The Athletic reported that five-star strong-side defensive end Korey Foreman has decommitted from Clemson. Raynor states that the distance from Foreman’s home and the school played a role in his decision. He is a native of Corona, California.
Foreman is ranked as the No. 1 overall prospect in the 2021 class, and the 12th-best talent in the history of 247Sports’ Composite rankings. The 6-foot-4, 265-pound defensive end had initially committed to the Tigers in late January.
Korey Foreman, the No. 1 player in the Class of 2021, has decommitted from Clemson, a person with direct knowledge tells The Athletic. Distance from home played a factor for the defensive end and California native.
Story coming within the hour.

If proximity to home plays a factor in Foreman’s decision, it’s unlikely that he’ll leave Pac-12 country. However, it would be interesting to see whether or not he’d give some consideration to some of the B1G programs who have made an offer.
Of the 27 offers Foreman has received, three are from the B1G — Ohio State, Penn State and Nebraska.
With no unofficial or official visits permitted during the ongoing public health crisis, Foreman won’t be able to make any trips to campuses for the foreseeable future. You better believe his phone will be lighting up quite a bit in the coming days and weeks, though.
