Five-star wide receiver Tee Higgins committed to Clemson on Monday in a Bleacher Report July 4th-themed commitment video.

In the high production video, Higgins has a barbecue with friends and families and eventually shoots off fireworks while the Clemson Tiger Paw is the last firework on display.

The 6-foot-4.5, 188-pound Higgins is an elite playmaker by all the major recruiting services and one of the top wide receivers in the nation.

In 2015, he had 46 receptions for 841 yards and 16 touchdowns and lead Oak Ridge to a 10-3 record and an appearance in the state playoffs. The 4-star playmaker was the first freshman to start at Oak Ridge since 2002 and had 23 catches for 387 yards and six touchdowns for the undefeated Wildcats in 2014.

One of the top players in the 2017 recruiting class, Higgins had been a verbal commit to Tennesse before reopening his recruitment. Higgins is a huge miss for Tennessee as he is the No. 1 recruit from Tennessee, and the nation’s No. 3 wide receiver.

TigerNet was on hand for the 2016 Dabo Swinney Camp, and Higgins was impressive, to say the least.

"“It was pretty good. It was pretty fun," Higgins told TigerNet recently. "Just getting to work with Coach (Jeff) Scott on some of the receiver drills really stood out. I think I performed pretty good. I just came off of an injury, so I wasn't exactly full speed, but I think I did pretty good coming off of a hamstring injury."

Higgins also was able to spend time with future teammates 4-star wide receiver Amari Rodgers and 5-star quarterback Hunter Johnson - both from the home state of Tennessee.

"That was great," he said. "It was good to work out with those guys. Amari is a great receiver and Hunter is a great quarterback. Being able to be out there with them was a lot of fun."

Higgins is the No. 31 overall player, and No. 5 ranked receiver according to ESPN.

He is the 11th commit of Clemson’s stellar 2017 class.
