West Virginia Offers 2026 3-Star Camdin Portis, Son of Former NFL All-Pro



Camdin Portis

Will the son of a former NFL All-Pro become a Mountaineer? It’s at least a possibility now that WVU has sent an official offer to Camdin Portis, the son of former star running back Clinton Portis.

Portis, a class of 2026 three-star running back prospect, announced his West Virginia offer on X (Twitter) on Monday. “Blessed to say I have received an offer from West Virginia University!,” said Portis about the offer.

Listed at 6-foot and 170 pounds, Portis still has two more high seasons remaining at Indian Land High School in Fort Mill, S.C. Portis does not play running back like his famous father. Instead, Portis plays defensive back and wide receiver.

The younger Portis may not be experiencing the hype to the level his father once received, but he is ranked among the top 20 South Carolina  by multiple recruiting outlets. Rivals even places Portis as the No. 4 player in his class.

Portis’ list of offers include major programs like Boston College, Colorado, Georgia Tech, Houston, Missouri, North Carolina State, North Carolina, Ole Miss, Penn State, UCLA, USF and Virginia Tech as well as some lower tier schools like Charlotte and Marshall.

Portis even has one special offer on the table. The Miami (FL) Hurricanes, Clinton’s alma matter, have also shown interest in his Camdin.

For anyone unaware, Clinton Portis accumulated 9,923 yards and scored 75 touchdowns over nine NFL seasons with the Denver Broncos and the Washington Commanders (then Redskins). Prior to his NFL success, Clinton Portis ran for 2,253 yards with an average of 5.7 yards per carry in 29 games in college. He was a member of Miami’s 2001 national championship team.
