Frank Ladson Jr. is going home. 

He'll also be returning to the place he used to call home. The former Clemson receiver, who entered the NCAA transfer portal last month, announced Saturday that he's committed to the Miami Hurricanes. 

Ladson played at South Dade High School in Homestead, Fla., about 40 minutes from Coral Gables. He came to Clemson in the 2019 recruiting class and recorded 31 receptions for 438 yards in three seasons.

Clemson Will Enter ACC Tournament With Well Rested Bullpen

After getting quality starts from all three starting pitchers in a sweep of Boston College, Clemson will head to Charlotte and the ACC Tournament with a well-rested bullpen.

Ladson will return to Tiger Town when Hurricanes make a trip to Death Valley this fall. The 2022 ACC schedule with dates and some times is expected to be released later this month, but Miami is on the home slate.

A top-5 receiver as a recruit and a four-star prospect had six touchdowns for Tigers in a career that's more remembered for his inability to stay on the field because of injuries. Ladson played in 10 games and made just four starts in 2020 while dealing with various injuries. He

He had surgery during the offseason and then saw action in just four games in 2021 because of a hip issue. Ladson, who had just four catches and 19 yards last season as a junior, left the program following the final regular-season game against South Carolina. 

Ladson joins an offense led by Tyler Van Dyke, who had a solid freshman campaign in 2021. New head coach Mario Cristobal took over the Hurricanes last month, and former Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich was hired to run Miami as well.
