4-star 2017 offensive guard Matt Bockhorst committed to Clemson on Saturday afternoon.

TigerNet spoke with Bockhorst moments after his commitment and explained how he committed to the Tigers.

"We were all in the locker room and I pulled Dabo Swinney and Coach Caldwell aside and gave them my commitment."

Bokhorst is excited for the chance to play at Clemson.

"Well I would say that I'm very excited right now but that would be a severe understatement."

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

TigerNet spoke with Bockhorst on Monday morning and actually hinted at a commitment as he discussed the main factors that he was looking for in a school.

"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.

Bockhorst is Clemson's 5th commit for the 2017 recruiting class.
