Kirk Herbstreit’s sons to walk on at Clemson
The twin sons of ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit will be walk-ons next fall at an ACC powerhouse.
Herbstreit currently has three sons playing football at Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville, Tennessee. Two of them, Jake and Tye, will be headed to Clemson next year as preferred walk-ons.
Having his sons playing at different schools will make it tough for Herbstreit to see all the games.
“I’ll have Zak playing at MBA as a junior, and Jake and Tye going over to Clemson. We’ll have to cross that bridge when we get to it. These are all really good problems to have,” Herbstreit told FOX 17 about his attempts to watch his sons. “My goal is to be there for anything I can be.”
Jake is a starting safety and Tye is a wide receiver. The twins have helped Montgomery Bell to an 11-1 record this season. Based on their profiles at 247 Sports, they do not appear to have been heavily recruited out of high school.
