WEDDINGTON – Weddington High School junior running back Will Shipley has committed to playing college football for national powerhouse Clemson Tigers.
Shipley was not only named an all-American player but also the N.C. Gatorade Player of the Year.

If this pandemic didnt happen and Shipley could have visited for his official then ND gets him. This was a big advantage for Clemson with him being in their backyard. Big loss for ND but an even bigger loss for Shipley. On to the next. #GoIrish ☘☘

Five-star RB Will Shipley committed to Clemson, which is a huge blow to Notre Dame. The Irish realllllly wanted him.
