Clinton Earl Portis (born September 1, 1981 in Laurel, Mississippi) is an American football running back for the Washington Redskins of the National Football League.

Portis starred at the University of Miami. He considered going to the University of South Carolina but a fight that he had at Gainesville High School had his scholarship taken away.

Portis became only the second true freshman to start at running back since Miami's 1975 season. He led the team with 838 yards and eight touchdowns on 143 carries (5.9 avg.) in 10 games. He also caught four passes for 44 yards (11.0 avg.) and 2 touchdowns. When Portis was still a relative unknown, Lee Corso singled out Portis's performance during a defeat by Florida State for hustling and never giving up, saying "that kid can play for me any time."
