Commits react to Etienne's pledge

On Thursday evening, Jennings (La.) four-star running back Travis Etienne surprised many when he committed to Clemson over in-state LSU, calling it “the real Death Valley.”

After his announcement, The Clemson Insider reached out to some of Clemson’s commits for their reactions to Etienne joining the 2017 class:

Matt Bockhorst, Cincinnati, Ohio (St. Xavier):

“It’s a huge get. With Cordarrian’s situation, we needed a running back and we were able to get one in a short period of time. It shows you the power of Clemson football and what the Clemson brand means across the country. It’s a great way to cap off a class that may not be the biggest or the most highly rated, but one that’s filled with quality guys and great football players.”

Chase Brice, Loganville, Ga. (Grayson):

“I’m super excited! I’ve heard great things about him and his highlight tape is solid. Huge get for us!”

Noah DeHond, Hightstown, N.J. (Peddie):

“Definitely a big get, he’s the cherry on top to this hot fudge sundae of a class.”

Amari Rodgers, Knoxville, Tenn. (Knoxville Catholic):

“It’s a huge get especially with us losing Cordarrian! He’s a great player and will definitely help us in the future.”

Baylon Spector, Calhoun, Ga. (Calhoun):

“Huge get for the class! Just glad to have him a part of the family.”

A.J. Terrell, Atlanta, Ga. (Westlake):

“Great commit for us. Now our class is locked and locked, it’s going to be fun.”
