Nation's No. 1 prospect and five-star defensive end Xavier Thomas of Bradenton (FL) IMG has committed to Clemson over South Carolina before the annual Orange and White game on Saturday.

"Biggest decision of my lifetime, my recruitment is OVER," Thomas shared on his Twitter account moments after his commitment. "I'm 100% ALL IN ?????? This is only the beginning. If you haven't seen my dads twitter, go check it out @ETitusThomas," Thomas posted on his Twitter account. Thanks Dad, I really wish you were here with us...Today my recruitment journey has come to an end. After long talks with my parents and family, the December commitment date is no longer. I'm currently here at Clemson University surrounded by our Wonderful family and our new extended family - Clemson Tigers Football Staff, players, and fans! After many long prayers and in-depth talks with you Dad about what this one moment truly means to my life. I'm excited and proud to say that I'm absolutely 100% ALL IN! They were all so good to me and I will always be grateful for all the love they have shown me and the family and I wish them the best. A historic adventure begins in my life and I am focused on achieving nothing less than greatness...and Dad nothing means more to me than to know that you will be here to share in it all with me. I LOVE YOU! From a Wilson Tiger to a Clemson Tiger....Thomas and Tiger Pride! Also, to fans or anyone else. If you don't have anything positive to say then please keep it to yourself."

Thomas, the No. 1 overall player for the 2018 recruiting cycle, is also an early enrollee and will enroll at Clemson in January.

The Tigers have the top 2 players in the country committed for the 2018 class.

Thomas has national offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, South Carolina, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas, Wake Forest, and others.

“We have the opportunity — I talked to Zamir White, and Trevor [Lawrence], of course Trevor’s already committed there,” Thomas said via sbnation.com recently about Clemson. “Me and Zamir [White] talked how we could have one of the best classes to ever go there, top three players in the country, [could] have a very special class going there.”
