OLB Tanner Muse Profile
The South Point [Belmont, N.C.] junior spoke with Dabo Swinney about that commitment on Monday night.
"He was just making sure that I knew the road of the commitment, to be a Tiger. I already knew the way you're supposed to be when you're committed. I'm not going to take any visits and I'm fully committed, all of that stuff," Muse said, during an interview with CUTigers.
He added, "It's just been kind of coming onto me for the past week. I just thought it was a good time to do it."
Area recruiter, defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks, stopped by South Point last Tuesday.
"It kind of made me start thinking that maybe it was time to commit," Muse said.
A number of factors led him to that thought.
"The relationship I have with the coaches, the atmosphere that they have there and the playing time that I'll be able to have when I get there," Muse said.
He hopes to make a return visit to Clemson in the near future.
"I'm going to go pretty soon so where I'll be able to talk to coach [Swinney] face-to-fact, coach Brent [Venables] and all of them guys, and just take the family down there, just let everybody get a feel for it," Muse said.
Despite his classification on Scout.com as an outside linebacker, Clemson has Muse down as a safety.
"I just want to bring everything I've got to the table on playing and try to bring us to another national championship," he said.
Muse is now alongside wide receiver Shadell Bell, safety Van Smith, offensive lineman Noah Green, linebackers J.D. Davis and Judah Davis in the Tigers' 2015 class.
Louisville, Ole Miss, Michigan and the ACC schools in his home state have also offered.
Muse had 87 tackles and four interceptions as a junior.
