Charlotte Christian School's RB Ryan Henley-5-10, 184 pound rising junior is drawing quite a bit of interest from Clemson. He's been on a couple of visits to Clemson including The Dabo Swinney Camp and another unofficial where he was shown around by RB coach CJ Spiller. According to reports, Spiller really like what he saw in Henley. Spiller had Henley in again in June to camp.
It would be awesome if Clemson backed up Shipley with another white RB coming in the future.

Good to see another young back out of North Carolina! Btw Spiller seems like a decent guy. Has no issues playing our guy's at RB. At a huge university nonetheless!

I've got another White RB to keep an eye on. Colton Brunell is 6'1 210lbs from Columbus, Wisconsin. Rushed for 2,200 yards and 31TDs as a sophomore! No scholarships yet, go figure.

Yes it is booth. If Jordon Triplett is the number 1 running back in 2024 then that would be the second time in around 5 years. This is America and white running backs get no respect. Maybe there are small cracks in
the Caste Dam holding back all the great white football players! :)

I don't follow high school football closely but this article about a local kid, Anthony Speca, who plays linebacker certainly caught my eye. 6' 3" 219 with a 4.55 40, ranked number nine in the country at LB by Rivals and with offers from, according to the article "Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Pitt, Tennessee, Texas A&M, West Virginia, Wisconsin and many other Power Five schools." Must be a heckuva talent to get those kinds of offers so is someone to keep an eye on. Speca plays for Pittsburgh's Central Catholic High School, which is a traditional powerhouse in the area.

Central Catholic's Anthony Speca is a new-age linebacker with old-school style

Dabo Swinney has been pretty fair to white players and have recruited quite a few, however when I looked up the 2024 prospects, I believe there was only 1 white defensive player and maybe 2 white OL. in the top 20 or so. I don't even think I saw a white QB. The lone white LB Sammy Brown from Georgia is a stud, but he's being recruited by everyone. It's not a given he's even going to Clemson. I hope I'm wrong, but the future of Clemson Football looks really dark.
