On the season Claiborne has racked up 2,920 yards on 211 carries, accounting for 47 touchdowns on the ground alone and 52 in total. He’s had no less than 208 yards in any of the five playoff games, culminating with a masterful performance in the state championship going for 309 total yards and 4 touchdowns accounted for
There was a bit of drama leading up to this one as Claiborne spread the word that he was going to push his signing back to February and check out the likes of UVA, Virginia Tech, and Penn State out more, but an impromptu visit from the coaching staff and a good night’s sleep got him to sign today and solidify his commitment to Wake Forest
