Nation's No. 1 prospect and five-star defensive end Xavier Thomas of Bradenton (FL) IMG committed to Clemson over South Carolina before the annual Orange and White game on Saturday.
However, some in-state fans on Twitter aren't letting go of the possibility he is 100% on his commitment to Clemson since he grew up a Gamecocks fan. Thomas wanted to quiet the doubters by posting an Arnold Schwarzenegger clip with the caption: NO CHANCE.
Thomas is also an early enrollee and will enroll at Clemson in January. The Tigers have the top 2 players in the country committed for the 2018 class.
Thomas has national offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, South Carolina, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas, Wake Forest, and others.
“We have the opportunity — I talked to Zamir White, and Trevor [Lawrence], of course Trevor’s already committed there,” Thomas said via sbnation.com recently about Clemson. “Me and Zamir [White] talked how we could have one of the best classes to ever go there, top three players in the country, [could] have a very special class going there.”
