The Clemson coaching staff picked up a big commitment Thursday when 2014 outfield KJ Bryant gave a verbal commitment to the Tigers.
“Originally I was committed to South Carolina. I decided to decommit and look at my options. Clemson came calling and I fell in love with Clemson and their coaching staff,” said Bryant.
When did KJ decommit from South Carolina?
“I decommitted from South Carolin on Monday,” replied Bryant.
How did the commitment to the Tigers go down?
“The offer was on the table. coach LeCroy gave me a tour around the campus. He took me over to show all the plans for the new facilities. I toured Vickery Hall. I love how supportive they are. After that I talked with coach Pep and then went in coach Leggett’s office and told him I wanted to be a Clemson Tiger,” said Bryant.
Coach Leggett was pleased to get the good news Thursday.
“He kind of knew. I camped there earlier and we always had a good relationship. Carolina offered and I committed there, but now I am where I should be and that is at Clemson,” said Bryant.
The Wade Hampton standout is the No. 1 player in South Carolina at his position and the 65th best in the nation. Bryant adds to the Tigers outstanding 2014 class.
