Ahead of the early signing period Dec. 20-22, Covington (Ga.) defensive tackle commit Darnell Jefferies signed his letter of intent to Clemson in a ceremony at his high school Friday.

Jefferies told TigerNet earlier this season that he has high expectations for the future of the Clemson defense.

As a senior, Jefferies earned region defensive player of the year by posting 19 tackles for loss and seven sacks, totaling 65 tackles and also a pick-six:
