Jacksonville Athlete Selects Tigers Over Gamecocks
CLEMSON, SC -- According to www.mickeyplyler.com, on Friday Clemson picked up a commitment from Arlington Country Day athlete Gerald McCloud. The 6-foot-3 and 185 pound McCloud selected the Tigers over South Carolina after camping at both places this summer. Florida and Florida State were also showing interest in McCloud’s services, but the Jacksonville native elected to end his recruiting early to concentrate on his senior season.
McCloud rushed for over 1,000 yards as a junior at running back, but he says he is being recruited by the Tigers as a wide receiver or defensive back. Last month in a
spring jamboree game against St. Petersburg Keswick Christian, Gerald McCloud ran for 247 yards as Arlington Country Day won by a 65-13 score.
The addition of McCloud gives the Tigers nine verbal commitments so far this year. Last year Clemson did not receive their ninth commitment (Trey Tate) until October 8 after the North Carolina State football game.
McCloud was recruited by Clemson assistant Rick Stockstill.
