Whether or not Clemson football under Dabo Swinney will ultimately be called a dynasty has yet to be determined. But it's a justifiable discussion, which is exactly why the talent Clemson recruits is top notch, and very few who decide to commit to the Tigers change their mind before they stop on campus.

That, however, is not the case for the one of the nation's top 2021 recruits, Korey Foreman.

According to multiple sources, the 6'4", 256 pound defensive lineman ranked as the #3 prospect in the 2021 class by ESPN decided on Tuesday to decommit from Clemson.

Foreman had committed to the Tigers back on January 26th and was one of two five star players that stated their desire to play under the orange helmet.

The California star had been, according to ESPN, been looking at other options for the past few weeks before deciding to open up his recruiting once again. It was rumored that USC had been making moves on Foreman, and he had already received offers from Alabama, Ohio State, Georgia, LSU, and a host of other prestigous programs.

Southern Cal has been making efforts to keep home grown California talent in the state this offseason, with the phrase "take back the west" showing up across social media for the past few weeks. That drive has, so far, netted the Trojans four ESPN Junior 300 commitments in state, and would receive a substantial shot in the arm if Foreman did indeed decide to ink with them.

This is the first top tier decommitment from the Clemson program since 2013 when Robert Nkemdiche walked away. 

Clemson still has nine total commits, and all of them are listed on the ESPN Junior 300.
