CLEMSON, S.C. – Head Coach Stephen Frazier Wong and the Clemson rowing program is excited to announce the commitment of nine student-athletes to its 2022 signing class.
“This is one of our best recruiting classes I’ve seen during my time here,” said Head Coach Stephen Frazier Wong. “Coach Nagorsen has done a great job identifying and bringing these students on campus so that they would fall in love with this university. We are counting the days until these new Tigers join us next year. They are as excited to be a part of the Clemson family as we are to welcome them.”

Also, the priority of having a healthy and strong team culture was unlike any other program I had been around and was really cool to see.”
