Clemson picked up another commitment Monday from an in-state prospect in the 2022 class.
Northwestern High School (Rock Hill, S.C.) lefthanded pitcher Ethan Darden announced his commitment to the Tigers.
I’m still at a loss of words and feelings. I’m extremely thankful for the athletic and academic opportunity @ClemsonBaseball is giving me. I’d like to thank my family, coaches, and teammates for making me the man I am today and @MonteLeeCU for believing in me. #GoTigers pic.twitter.com/AkRiY3GFGF
