Elite kicker commits to Clemson

Rock Hill (S.C.) South Pointe 2018 kicker B.T. Potter has committed to Clemson, he announced on social media Wednesday.

Potter competed at the Dabo Swinney Camp on Wednesday and received a long-awaited offer from the Tigers.

He chose Clemson over offers from Army and Mercer.

“First off, I’d like to thank God for everything he’s blessed me with,” Potter said in a post on Twitter. “I really appreciate all of the coaches who have believed in me and helped me along the way. I would also like to thank Coach Swinney and the rest of the staff at Clemson University for extending me an offer.

“After sitting down and talking with my family, I have decided to commit to play at Clemson University. This has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember, and I’m so thankful to have the opportunity to do so.”

Potter, one of the most highly regarded kickers in the Palmetto State, made 11 of 15 field goal attempts as a junior last season with a long of 49 yards. He also averaged around 60 yards per kickoff attempt and booted the vast majority of his kickoffs for touchbacks.

Potter, who is teammates with 2018 Clemson receiver commitment Derion Kendrick at South Pointe, becomes the ninth member of the Tigers’ 2018 recruiting class.

Along with Kendrick, he joins Richburg (S.C.) Lewisville four-star defensive tackle Josh Belk, Seneca (S.C.) tight end Braden Galloway, Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy four-star linebacker Mike Jones, Cartersville (Ga.) five-star quarterback Trevor Lawrence, Snellville (Ga.) South Gwinnett four-star defensive end Justin Mascoll, Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy five-star defensive end Xavier Thomas and Central (S.C.) Daniel four-star linebacker Jake Venables.
