Clemson added its 12th commitment to the 2018 class by flipping a Virginia Tech pledge in the Upstate.

Dorman offensive lineman Jordan McFadden announced on Twitter Saturday night that he intends to play for the Tigers now.

"After talking it over with my family and friends, I have decided Clemson is the best (place) for me to continue my athletic and academic career," McFadden said with his announcement Saturday night.

McFadden had been a Virginia Tech commitment since July 4, but after an early August Clemson offer, he had been trending the Tigers' way. McFadden made an official visit for The Citadel game on Nov. 18. McFadden told TigerNet he had made his mind up and talked to Clemson coach Dabo Swinney about a week after that visit.

McFadden is a 3-star prospect on the 247Sports Composite rankings and the first offensive lineman in the 2018 Clemson class.

Clemson moved up one spot in the 247Sports rankings to 14th with McFadden's pledge. The Tigers rank eighth now on Rivals.com in rating average (3.67).
