After only a few months on campus, new Minnesota cornerback Kelvin Clemmons is exploring other options, according to a report.
Wednesday night, Andy Greder of the Pioneer Press reported that Clemmons has entered his name in the NCAA transfer database. He was a member of the Golden Gophers’ 2019 recruiting class and was an early enrollee, joining the program in January.
Clemmons came to Minnesota from Hutchinson Community College, located in Kansas. He was a three-star junior college prospect and looked to compete for a rotational role in the secondary.
However, according to Greder, Clemmons didn’t seem to be much of a contender to be a major player at cornerback for the Gophers in 2019. Limited playing time could be the reason for his decision to explore other opportunities, though no reason has been given.
Though he’s entered his name in the transfer portal, Clemmons would still have the option to return to Minnesota if it was in his best interest.
Clemmons had offers from several programs, including Kentucky, USF and Maryland. It is unknown if he would have a favorite destination at this time.
