Tiger Source learned this evening Tennessee transfer Brent Schaeffer will not be coming to Clemson. A source close to Schaeffer's recruitment confirmed on Wednesday Clemson would not take Schaeffer.


Schaeffer left Tennessee following a tumultous spring, where he had a run-in with the law. Clemson was the first school he made an official visit to. The Tigers appeared set to take the quarterback, but in the end decided to go a different route.


Head Coach Tommy Bowden has been very careful in the past when evaluating players with a history. The staff always looks at each case individually, and they make a decision on what is best for the program and the university.


Schaeffer's likely destination will now be South Florida. As for where, Clemson will look at quarterback now, expect an announcement on Byrnes' rising junior quarterback Will Korn in the very near future. There have been several reports that Clemson would land Korn in the near future, and a source VERY close to Korn told us all they were waiting on was Coach Bowden to accept the commitment.


Clemson could decide to offer Alabama quarterback Chris Smelley. Smelley is a highly rated prospect out of Alabama, and his favorite target, Jeffrey Ogren, has already committed to Clemson. We will have stories on Smelley and Korn over the next couple of days.
