In-state LB pledges to Clemson

By

Blythewood (SC) linebacker Jalen Williams committed to play football at Clemson this morning. Williams accepted the Tigers’ greyshirt offer and will become a member of the 2014 recruiting class if a scholarship becomes available. At the very least, he will enroll in 2015 and become a Tiger then.

Williams picked up a Clemson offer this summer after an eye-popping performance at camp. He was considered by many to be the best linebacker in a group that featured several high-caliber prospects. The Clemson staff views him as a diamond-in-the-rough kind of prospect. His other finalists were Appalachian State and Towson.

The 6’0″, 220-pound linebacker is in line to be the first Clemson signee from Blythewood since receiver Marquan Jones in 2008. It would be the first time Dabo Swinney signs a player from the school, where Clemson wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Jeff Scott was once the head coach.
