Effective immediately, CUTigers.com announces that former Clemson cornerback Touré Francis has joined the staff of CUTigers.com.
Francis, a native of Columbia and a former walk-on who eventually became a starter, will serve as a key contributor to CUTigers.com throughout spring practice.
"I'm excited about the opportunity," said Francis. "This should be a good way to bring the Clemson fans closer to the team because I still know these guys. Roy and I have talked about what I'm going to be doing, and it's going to be wonderful."
Francis will specialize in feature articles on current Clemson players, as well as in-depth analysis on specific areas of the Clemson football team.
"I love Clemson, so this is something that should be a lot of fun for me," said Francis. "I can't wait to get going."
Toure's first day with CUTigers.com will be Friday, March 11, the first day of spring practice.
"Adding Touré Francis to our web site is something our subscribers are going to enjoy in a very big way," said CUTigers.com Editor Roy Philpott. "Toure is a guy that is well-respected by his former teammates and coaches, and he understands the game. We are just real excited to have him on board."
Francis finished up his Clemson football career in 2003. He was a starting cornerback at various points in each of his last three seasons with the Tigers.
Since graduating from Clemson, Francis has been working towards entering law school next year, and he has also done radio work for the South Carolina News Network.
