Tigers Pick Up Big Commitment For 2008
The class of 2007 picked up some big momentum this past week with verbal commitments from Stanley Hunter and Scotty Cooper. Now, the class of 2008 is off to a nice start.
Blythewood wide receiver Marquan Jones had been a strong Clemson lean for some time. The news over the weekend still came as a little bit of a surprise. The junior wide receiver ended his recruitment with a verbal commitment to Clemson.
"Clemson's coaching staff is just great. Coach Scott was my recruiter, and I know I can come to him with anything. It was the right time for me to go ahead and make my decision," said Jones.
Jones had a chance to sit down with head coach Tommy Bowden to inform him of his decision.
"I told Coach Bowden I wanted to commit to Clemson, and we shook hands. It is over. Clemson is the only school for me."
Jones will be the number two wide receiver prospect in-state next year behind A.J. Green of Summerville.
