Clemson's three-star running back commitment now has 5,091 yards during his prep career. In last week's loss to Harris County, Choice passed his cousin -- former Georgia Tech running back Joe Burns -- on the Thomas County Central rushing list.

This season, Choice has rushed for 1,595 yards and 12 touchdowns. The quarterback at TCCHS, he's completed 27 of 49 passes for 529 yards with four touchdowns.

TCCHS plays Richmond Hill on Friday in the first-round of the Georgia AAAAA playoffs.

"We're 8-2. We lost a tough one last week, the region championship, so we're now the third seed going into the playoffs. We've had a pretty good season so far," Choice said.

His future teammates up in Clemson are 8-1 this season.

"They're having a pretty good season so far, other than, of course, the one loss to Florida State," Choice said. "I mean, it's been a good season for them so far. I knew they'd bounce back from that loss and pick back up where they left off."

Choice has visited Clemson twice this season, for the Georgia and Florida State games.

"Loud," Choice said, when asked about the experiences in Tigertown. "But I loved it. The fans were into the game and they were great games. Other than, it was just a great night to be in Death Valley."

Tony Elliott and Danny Pearman remain in contact with the No. 35 running back in the class of 2014.

"I'll speak to coach Elliott every now and then, but me and coach Pearman talk every week. He's basically who I talk to the most," Choice said.

When he arrives to Clemson next summer, Choice will play a new position -- running back.

"I'm going to get up there, work hard, working hard as I can. I'm going to be trying to adjust," he said. "But I don't think, from my standing, it shouldn't take long. So, I'm going to go up there, do what I'm supposed to do and give it all I've got, just compete for a job."
