Clelin Ferrell Says Virginia Tech Coach Cussed Him Out After Clemson Commitment


Clelin Ferrell was a highly-touted recrout coming out of Benedictine High School in Richmond, Virginia. As a four-star prospect, Ferrell was widely recruited, with his decision coming down to the Clemson Tigers and Virginia Tech Hokies.

Ultimately, Ferrell chose Dabo Swinney’s team and it paid off with a national championship.

But it hasn’t all been rainbows and butterflies for the defensive end.

After his commitment to the Tigers, Ferrell says he was “cussed out” by a Virginia Tech coach when he called to say he has made his decision.

“When I called and told (a Virginia Tech coach), it wasn’t the best conversation with him,” Ferrell said, via Grace Raynor of the Post and Courier. “I’m not going to tell you who it was, but let’s just say he kind of cussed me out a little bit.

” … we had built a close relationship and he just kind of didn’t understand why I chose Clemson over Virginia Tech. But it’s all fun and games now. It’s in the past.”

If that’s how the coach reacted, it seems like Ferrell made the right choice. That national title helps, too.

Ferrell and the Tigers head to Blacksburg on Saturday for a meeting with the Hokies. Clemson sits at 4-0 on the season, while Virginia Tech also enters the game with a perfect record.
