The Carolina Panthers have claimed former Alcorn State linebacker Claudin Cherelus off of waivers. 

Cherelus was picked up by the Panthers after being waived by the New York Jets. He signed with the Jets after going undrafted and stuck around until the final cut.

He signed with the Jets as an undrafted free agent this spring after two standout seasons at Alcorn State. He recorded 149 total tackles including 25.5 tackles for loss — 14.5 in 2022 alone. He was an All-SWAC selection and participated in the HBCU Legacy Bowl earlier this year.

As a senior in high school, Cherelus recorded 50 tackles, four sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery on defense his senior year. On offense, he registered 526 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns. A two-sport star in high school, Cherelus also played power forward in basketball at Golden Gate.
