4-star OG officially signs with Clemson

4-star 2017 offensive guard Matt Bockhorst has signed his NLI on Wednesday morning confirmed by TigerNet.

TigerNet spoke with Bockhorst moments after he officially signed with Clemson.

"I'm so excited and proud to be able to represent Clemson," Bockhorst said. "At the beginning of this entire process if somebody told me that I would be signing with Clemson today I would probably have laughed in their face, but I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and I strongly believe that Clemson is the best place for me without a question. Ever since I committed there has never once been a doubt in my mind.

Bockhorst is a consensus 4-star recruit by all the major recruiting services and was named first-team all-state and first-team all-district his junior season.

He had offers from Boston College, Cincinnati, Clemson, Duke, Illinois, Louisville, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Penn State, Toledo and Vanderbilt.

TigerNet spoke with Bockhorst in the past and here is what he thought about the Clemson program.

"Respected academic institution with a football program that will challenge me to grow as a man," Bockhorst said. "Not necessarily about wins and losses but I'm looking for a program and a coach that cares about the right things and developing men."

Bockhorst also talked about two Clemson coaches that will work hard on him when he starts at Clemson.

"Coach Caldwell told me that he will get on me and push me, but he will love me and hold me accountable. Coach Swinney is the same way."

Some of his physical measurables (non-verified) include a 5.25 40-yard dash, 4.68 shuttle, 27.2-inch vertical jump, 305-pound bench press and a 495-pound squat.
