It didn't take long after visiting Clemson for Junior Day for Tucker Israel to commit to the Tigers.
"I just love the coaching staff up there, coach Morris and coach Swinney are great guys. I just felt like that could be the place where I could spend four or five years of my college life and that it's the right fit for me. I'm really interested in what Clemson has in store for me," he said.
Since then, Israel has picked up offers from Florida, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Vanderbilt, and more. While Israel says he'll give every school a fair shot to recruit him, he's pretty happy with his commitment to the Tigers.
"I'm interested in everybody, you have to show interest if they show interest. I'll just continue to evaluate and whatever the best decision is for me as a student and an athlete, that'll come along within time," he said.
"I'm still going to evaluate until the day I sign, but Clemson is a great a school and right now I'm going to stick with them."
The Sunshine State signal-caller is certainly proud to have all of this attention because he knows he's worked for it.
"Earlier in my career, this is what I was hoping for, and I worked hard, so I was somewhat expecting it, I was just hoping the day would come, and it did," he said.
As far as visits go, the Orlando (Fla.) Lake Nona standout will likely do some traveling this summer with his teammates and head coach, but he isn't sure where. He is sure he'll be visiting Clemson for the Tigers spring game and he can't wait for his parents to take the trip with him.
"My parents didn't go up with me the last time I went with (Lake Nona head) coach (Anthony Paradiso), so I'm looking forward to them seeing what I saw," he said.
"I was really excited when I got back and they're eager to see what I saw and meet the coaches and tour the facilities and just feel the love that I felt when I was there."
With all of this attention Israel has been getting lately, the obvious question people will ask is, "Do Clemson fans need to wonder about his commitment?"
"They don't need to worry," Israel said with a smile.
