The commitment parade continued for the Tigers on Wednesday when Conyers, Georgia defensive tackle Grady Jarrett gave a verbal commitment to the Tigers.
“It was good. I just called them and told them I thought about it and told him I wanted to be All In. He said he was glad to have me on board. I always wanted to go to Clemson. I am real excited. Now I can focus on my season. Then I can start getting ready for the next level,” said Jarrett.
After an impressive performance at the Dabo Swinney camp, the 6-1, 275 pound lineman got the offer he had been wanting.
“I got the offers yesterday. It was after the afternoon practice. Coach Swinney gave me the offer after practice,” said Jarrett.
During the camp Grady got to meet some of his future teammates.
“I met DeShaun. He is real cool. I met some of the players out there doing one on one’s,” said Jarrett.
How firm is his commitment to the Tigers?
“It is solid,” replied Jarrett.
Marlin Lane had been pushing to get his good friend on board with the Tigers.
“We have been tight since the eighth grade. We talk a couple of times a week. Coach Whitey Jordan always preached to us about Clemson. He worked at a camp down there,” said Jarrett.
The top defensive tackle becomes the 15th commitment for the Tiger’s 2011 class.
