Former Clemson DE Adam Kissayi picks transfer portal destination


by -

The next stage of a young college football career was settled on quickly for a former Clemson defensive end.

After spending the spring with Tiger football as a mid-year enrollee, Adam Kissayi formally entered the transfer portal from Clemson on Sunday and formally committed to Minnesota on Sunday.

Kissayi did the reverse with his commitment last July, flipping from the Gophers to the Tigers within hours on decommitment and commitment announcements.

He is Clemson's lone spring window transfer entry to this point in a run that goes through April 30.
