Commits react to ACC Championship


After Clemson defeated Florida State 18-13 on Sunday to claim the ACC Championship, The Clemson Insider reached out to several Clemson baseball commitments for their reactions to the Tigers winning the title.




Bo Gobin, 2016 right-handed pitcher (Summerville, S.C.-Summerville High School):

“That’s definitely huge, with us coming in and seeing Coach Lee, what he did with that program. Recruits see the upside in it. I look forward to being part of a program that grows and exceeds thoughts and expectations.”

Matthew Cooper, 2017 catcher/first baseman/outfielder (Virginia Beach, Va.-Norfolk Academy):

“Super pumped about the ACC Tournament win. I have several friends, who I play with, who are committed to ACC schools, so it is nice to have some room to smack talk. It shows how good of a coach Monte Lee is to come in in his first season and have the tremendous season they’ve had. I’ve had a blast all year watching this team and seeing all the great things they’ve done, and it makes me really excited for the future of Clemson baseball.”

Drew Donathan, 2017 catcher (Charlotte, N.C.-Charlotte Christian School):

“It just gets me fired up about coming to Clemson. Winning the conference tournament in Coach Lee’s first year is very impressive. I think it will become more and more common under his leadership. Hopefully they can carry the momentum into the NCAA Tournament.”

Elijah Henderson, 2017 shortstop (Taylors, S.C.-Blue Ridge High School):

“We are coming on hot at the end of the season and peaking at the right time. After this weekend, I think we have shown how good we can really be and that we can beat anyone in the country! I’m excited to see how things end up. I think many more trophies are to come.”

Bo Majkowski, 2017 outfielder (Johns Creek, Ga.-Johns Creek High School):

“It’s a really good feeling knowing Coach Lee came in his first year and led the Tigers to an ACC Championship. It’s going to be fun seeing how much more success he has in years to come.”

Kier Meredith, 2017 outfielder (Winston-Salem, N.C.-Glenn High School):

“Those guys are just unbelievable, and the fight they have is “second to none” as Coach Lee would say. Clemson is the place to be right now, and things are only going to get better! I’m just excited to become a Clemson Tiger!”

Matthew Lumsden, 2018 catcher/corner infielder/outfielder (Simpsonville, S.C.-J.L. Mann High School):

“What an accomplishment. What a year for Coach Lee, the staff and the whole team. Congrats.

“From a recruit side, we are fans and take great pride in what this team is doing. Their character is off the charts. This can only help the staff in their recruiting — a national seed, all the television exposure and the Tiger tradition. Having good recruits that want to come to Clemson for its tradition and to be part of the future will make us all better. I hope they go all the way and that it’s just the start of a long run of great Tiger teams in the future.”

Davis Sharpe, 2018 right-handed pitcher/shortstop (Dacula, Ga.-Mill Creek High School):

“I think it’s really cool that I committed to a school that won an ACC Championship, and that sets the expectations for the following years and when I get there. They’ve had a good season, and it would be great if they could continue their success into regionals, super regionals and maybe even the College World Series.”
