The twin sons of ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit will be playing college football for a major program next year.

Herbstreit's twin sons, Jake and Tye Herbstreit, play cornerback and wide receiver, respectively, for Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville.

The twin sons will be preferred walk-ons for Clemson next season.

From FOX 17:

Montgomery Bell Academy will take on Brentwood Academy again Friday as both teams fight for a birth in the state championship. Kirk will be at the game, cheering on his sons, anxiously watching each play. Next year, his two twin senior boys will go to Clemson University to be preferred walk-ons on the football team.

“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 said Thursday. “My goal is to be there for anything I can be.”

Herbstreit has been bringing his sons onto the College GameDay set for years, so it seems crazy that two of them are now of the college age.

Congrats to Jake and Tye on their college decisions. Clemson is an incredible program.
