S.C. kicker commits to Clemson

Porter Gaud (S.C.) 2019 kicker Jonathan Weitz announced a commitment to Clemson Monday night.
"Thank you to the Clemson coaches...who made me feel so welcomed and truly a part of the Clemson Family," Weitz posted on Twitter. "I cannot express the excitement I have saying that I am 100% committed to Clemson University."
Weitz announced a preferred walk-on offer from the Tigers in April after the spring game. He is rated the No. 62 kicker nationally by Chris Sailer Kicking with preferred walk-on offers also from Tulane and USF.
"Jonathan is an outstanding high school kicking prospect," Sailer posted on Weitz's profile. "A good looking athlete with nice future college potential. He is smooth and accurate on field goal. He hits a pure ball off the ground and gets excellent lift on his ball. Kickoffs are strong, near the top of his class. He drives the ball into the end zone with solid hang time. A confident kicker that does well under pressure...I look forward to seeing what the future holds. He is a fine young man that is always a great pleasure to work with. Fantastic prospect."
Weitz hit 5-of-8 field goal attempts as a junior and made All-Lowcountry second team by the Post and Courier as a punter.
