The Clemson Insider has confirmed that Clemson landed its first commitment for the 2016 Class when tight end J.C. Chalk gave Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney his verbal on Wednesday morning.
Chalk, who is from Argyle, Texas, had been at Swinney’s football camp this week. The Tigers rolled out the red carpet for the young man and gave him a lot of attention.
“Excited to say I have official committed to play football at the university of Clemson #gotiger,” Chalk tweeted.
The 6-foot-3, 216-pound tight end, has offers from Texas A&M, Arizona State and Duke. He is the grandson of former Alabama head coach Gene Stallings, who was Swinney’s coach when the Tigers’ head man was a wide receiver at Alabama. Swinney also coached on Stallings staff as a graduate assistant when he finished school.
