On Wednesday, he made the decision known to the public.
"I really like Clemson," Region told CUTigers. "It's a lot like home. I love he coaches up there. I feel a real close connection with all the coaches there.
"The class that we signed today, that's big time. We still have a shot to get Jadeveon Clowney. It's not a guarantee that we get him, but at least we have a shot with him. He'd top off our class. I'm really excited about getting up there and playing for coach [Dabo] Swinney."
As the morning unfolded, he kept an eye on what else was developing with his signing class.
Adding Stephone Anthony and Tony Steward to the group "was big time."
"It's going to help our defense a lot…I feel like some of the receivers coming in and some of the linemen coming in, with Mike Bellamy in the backfield, I feel like this class should bring Clemson back to where it needs to be," Region said.
His decision to sign with Clemson was actually reached upon his arrival for the official visit.
"I felt an automatic connection with the coaches. Everything is real family like," Region said. "I knew when I left Sunday that I was going to sign with Clemson."
Anthony's coach at Anson High School, Luke Hyatt, coached Region's team during this year's Under Armour game.
When Hyatt caught wind that Region had signed with Clemson, he had a positive review.
"He's good," Hyatt emphatically said. "That's good for him."
The silence is finally over
