Just two days before National Signing Day Clemson picked up a commitment, but it was from a 2014 standout, not a 2013. Williston Elko offensive lineman Taylor Hearn gave the good news to the Clemson staff Monday.
“Saturday I went up for the Junior Day. Me and my parents talked to coach Hobby and he said go home and thing and pray on it. I did and then today I called coach Swinney and told him I wanted to commit to Clemson,” said Hearn.
Why did the Palmetto standout decide to commit to the Tigers?
“Well I put a lot of thought into it. This is where I belong. I loved the coaches and the atmosphere at Clemson,” said Hearn.
The 6-5, 305 pound tackle knew he didn’t need to wait any longer.
“I got lots of love from Clemson. I felt like I was ‘the guy’. I feel like this is where I belong,” said Hearn.
How did the family react to the decision?
“They are all real happy for me. They can’t wait to see me play,” said Hearn.
The prize recruit becomes the fifth commitment for the Tiger’s 2014 class.
