2021 Cordova, Tennessee offensive tackle Dietrick Pennington announced a Clemson offer after working out at Dabo Swinney’s camp this week.
"Extremely blessed to receive an offer from @ClemsonUniv," Pennington posted on Twitter Thursday.
Pennington’s recruitment has gained steam this offseason with a series of visits across the Southeast and drawing offers over the last month-plus from Georgia, South Carolina and Mississippi State as well.
Report on Pennington this week
6/4: I spotted Cordova (TN) Evangelical Christian 2021 lineman Dietrick Pennington (6-5, 330) from across the field as I moved towards the defensive side. Pennington is listed as an offensive tackle by the recruiting sites and has offers from Georgia, Ole Miss, Miss. St., and UofSC.
Pennington was the biggest player on the field and drew the attention of Swinney. While working with grad assistant Miguel Chavis, Chavis implored Pennington to get lower (hey, it’s all about leverage at this level) and Pennington accepted every challenge.
After watching his bend and flexibility, however, I would agree that he projects more on the offensive side of the ball. – David Hood
