5-star defender commits to Clemson

Clemson made a 5-star addition to its defense Monday after a spring game weekend visit.
Jacksonville (Fla.) cornerback Fred Davis II announced a commitment to the Tigers after a visit to campus over the weekend.
He is rated as high as the No. 3 cornerback in the nation and No. 23 overall (Rivals). The commitment is a second out of the weekend for Clemson secondary, joining 4-star safety RJ Mickens and the 11th overall in the 2020 class.
Clemson holds the top average rating per commit of the 247Sports Composite rankings and is now within single-digit rating points of No. 1-rated Alabama in the rankings overall (the Crimson Tide have three more commits as well).
Davis attended Clemson’s Elite Junior Day in January and added an offer in December. Florida, Miami, Ohio State, Auburn and Alabama were also in his top-six schools going into the announcement.
He posted 51 tackles, 14 pass breakups and three interceptions last season for Trinity Christian as a Maxpreps junior All-American.
Davis said during his announcement that he is planning to be a mid-year enrollee.
