Personal Life

Cormani McClain was intended to be a star receiver in high school but an injury to a teammate forced him into action as a cornerback during his sophomore season. He thrived immediately and became a play-making cornerback with an interception in every game he started as a sophomore. That type of play allowed him to earn recognition as the region’s defensive player of the year. Videos of McClain’s efforts – both at receiver and defensive back – have gone viral multiple times on social media. Both of McClain’s parents – Cory McClain and Tikisha White – went to school at Florida State.

2022 Draft: Rnd 1 Pick 4
Cormani McClain is more highly touted than Sauce Gardner was as a recruit, but we see some similarities in the slender build and ball skills. Both showed the ability to make plays on the ball while starring at defensive back and wide receiver for their respective teams. McClain checks in at 6-foot-1.5 and around 165 pounds, while Gardner was 6-foot-2, 159 pounds as a recruit. McClain runs a bit faster in the combine setting as a recruit, while Gardner added considerable speed in his time at Cincinnati.
