Will Shipley, prospect out of Matthews, North Carolina has finally ended his recruitment. It took about a month longer than he wanted and the difficulties brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic made his recruitment even more stressful. Shipley received offers from Duke, Wake Forest, Virginia, West Virginia, Vanderbilt, UNC, NC State, Arkansas, Ohio State and many more but ultimately he announced his commitment via twitter on Tuesday afternoon.
This kid is FAST. I think Clemson received one hell of an athlete and i’m sure we’ll be seeing him on the field as a true freshman. Shipley was awarded the 2019 N.C. Gatorade High School Football Player of the Year. The 6 foot, 200-pound junior running back led his high school team to a 14-0 record. Shipley ended the season rushing 148 times for 1,639 yards and 25 touchdowns. He’s caught 30 passes for 509 yards and nine touchdowns.He also crushes it in the classroom and has a 4.0 GPA, he’s volunteered locally on behalf of homeless families and youth sports programs. He’s a guy to keep an eye out next season.
