From Jamie Newberg of ESPN:

"I loved my trip to Penn State," Destefano said. "It was a great visit. But it couldn't top Clemson. No one could top Clemson. I knew that if Penn State didn't do that no one would so I committed to the Tigers.

"Of course all the schools are great and they all have their own unique, great qualities. But Clemson just grew on me like a family. All the players there are the same type of guys. They protect their own and they really are a family. I was really striving to find something like that and I did at Clemson."

Destefano also had the support of his family and his coaches at Dorman.

"My parents always said it was my decision and that they would back me with whatever school I picked," Destefano said. "I love them for that and that really helped me with my decision. In the end, I was thinking about Clemson, Penn State, Stanford and Duke before picking the Tigers."

As anxious as he is to join Clemson, he feels he has some work to do still at Dorman.

"It's the best time to be a Tiger," Destefano said. "They are off to a great start. We here at Dorman have our own set of midseason problems at 3-4. This is where my focus is and we have to turn this around. I take it personally because I feel a little responsible for what has happened."
