Korey Foreman's Future at Clemson 'Set in Stone'
John Garcia, Jr.
MISSION VIEJO, Calif. -- When Korey Foreman picked Clemson in late January it was a surprise to some. The Corona (Calif.) Centennial defensive end held scholarship offers from across America before making the call during an unofficial visit to campus for the program's elite junior day weekend.
Should have the California pass rusher, checking in at some 6-foot-5, 270 pounds, committed to any other program there would already be speculation about whether or not School X could hold onto the pledge over the next 10 months.
Clemson's "All In" mantra starts with how it handles the recruiting process, however, meaning they're not going to pull an offer but also expect that same loyal commitment on the recruit's end.
It means no visits elsewhere, no leaving the door open, no doubt.
The longtime Dabo Swinney policy has resulted in tangible success on the recruiting trail in terms of continuity. Clemson hasn't had a decommitment since 2016 and Foreman's public words in between reps at the Los Angeles Under Armour All-America Game Camp on Sunday don't allude to him being the one to break up that unprecedented streak.
"I'm set in stone with the Clemson Tigers and I'm all in," he said.
In theory, with recruiting already completed, Foreman can focus on his health and the prospects of his high school's on-field success in 2020. He got in some work at the event despite the rainy conditions.
"It felt good," he said. "I didn't really get into the one-on-one aspect but working out, getting in conditioning, everything else was perfect.
"The main goal is to get a ring at the end of the season but I also want to stay as healthy as possible."
Foreman became an onlooker during the competition phase of the camp with his eyes on his position group and occasionally on a future Tiger teammate.
"I though Siale Suliafu, on the defensive line impressed," he said. "Beax (Collins), another Clemson commit, too."
One of the top junior prospects in the country, expect Foreman to continue to compete during camp season but don't expect him to show up on another program's campus for a recruiting trip. He unsurprisingly confirmed no plans to get out and see other schools.
According to Maxpreps, Foreman's production in eight games as a junior included 32 tackles, including five sacks and five tackles for loss for the Huskies.
