OLB Chris Register Profile
The No. 11 ranked outside linebacker in the class of 2014 joined the Tigers' group last Thursday. He'll be on campus for a visit today.
"I love the place. I feel like I fit in there," Register told CUTigers earlier this week.
He added, "They're very family-oriented."
A pair of the Clemson coaches teamed up to grab his commitment over Florida State, UNC, N.C. State and Florida.
"I've built a great relationship with Mike Reed, who was at N.C. State before. And, coach [Robbie] Caldwell, I built a great relationship with him," Register said.
Clemson's campus was also an attraction.
"The campus, you can walk around the whole campus in eight minutes. It's a small campus…that's what I liked about it," he said. "You don't have to drive everywhere -- you can ride a bike or something."
Not long after his pledge, Register heard from a pair of Clemson commitments.
"Korie Rogers texted me afterwards, and Deshaun Watson has texted me," he said.
Register believes that he, Rogers and the guys signed last year help make the Clemson linebacking future look pretty bright.
"I know with Korie and me, and the middle linebacker they got last year [Ben Boulware], the sky's the limit at linebacker," Register said.
He just hopes that one of his Dudley High School teammates can join the Clemson secondary. Emmanuel Moseley, a 2014 cornerback, will camp at Clemson on Wednesday.
Moseley, who checks in at 6-foot, 160 pounds, has offers from East Carolina and North Carolina A&T.
During his junior season, Register had 111 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, seven sacks, five forced fumbles, two interceptions and three pass breakups.
In nine games as a sophomore, Register had 90 tackles, 10 sacks, five forced fumbles, four interceptions and three pass break-ups.
