Several of the Clemson baseball commitments were in town on Sunday to see the Tigers complete the 2-1 series win over South Carolina.
The 2017 class was represented by outfielders Kier Meredith (Winston-Salem, N.C.) and Bo Majowski (Johns Creek, Ga.), catcher Drew Donathan (Charlotte), first baseman Bryce Bowen (Bowman, Ga.), shortstop Elijah Henderson (Taylors) and left-handed pitcher Jack Stamler (Greenville). 2018 right-handed pitcher Davis Sharpe (Dacula, Ga.) was thre, too.
“It was a huge win for Clemson, and the Tigers are off to a great start. Everyone is looking over Clemson but they won’t be come May. The environment was incredible — Clemson never fails to impress me. I think today was a record crowd and the fans are amazing — they do nothing but cheer their Tigers on. Today I got chills thinking about playing in that purple and orange playing in Doug Kingsmore Stadium. I can’t wait to get to campus.”
“Honestly, it was something else. It was a huge weekend for us and being there to witness it was amazing. The team is really playing well together and contributing in every aspect of the game. Quite an impressive weekend for the Tigers.”
“It was an amazing experience. The amount of energy at Doug Kingsmore Stadium was incredible. It’s solidified what makes Clemson so attractive to me — the fan base is second to none. All the fans I sat around were welcoming, knew the players by name and were engaged the whole game. Clemson baseball is very special and it reminds me to continue to work hard and stay hungry for what’s to come.”
“We pitched well and had timely hitting. It was an awesome experience and a great atmosphere. I can’t wait to play there.”
“It was a big win today against a very good South Carolina ball club. Lots of momentum going into ACC play. Doug Kingsmore Stadium was electric today — best fan support in the country. Great day to be a Tiger.”
“I thought it was a huge win for the team and for coach (Monte) Lee…I believe it was big for the team to take the series. It was very exciting being there for it because it showed me the excitement and emotion of a big series, but also the grit and grind of playing in a big game. It made me excited for the future of Clemson’s baseball program.”
