Clemson basketball coach Brad Brownell picked up his first commitment for the 2012 class Sunday night. Chattahoochee High School small forward Jaron Blossomgame committed to Clemson after his visit to Tigertown on Saturday afternoon.

"I've always loved Clemson. It's a really nice school, a really good basketball program. I love the coaches. They're good people, too. They showed me that. I felt like it was the right thing to do," he told CUTigers on Saturday night.

The Tigers extended the offer while he was in town for Saturday's game against North Carolina.

He's also received offers from Virginia Commonwealth, Wichita State and Tennessee Tech.

Blossomgame attended the Brad Brownell Elite Camp last summer. That's when his recruitment began to pick up.

"I talked to my AAU coach and my parents. I felt like it was the right thing to do, so I called coach Brownell and told him I wanted to be a Tiger," he said. "I did it once I got home."

So far during his junior season, Blossomgame averages 25 points and nine rebounds a game.

He'll play the small forward position at Clemson.

Blossomgame is 6-foot-7, 200 pounds.
