TE J.C. Chalk Profile
Three-star tight end J.C. Chalk was Clemson's first commitment in the 2016 recruiting class back in June, and some four months later that pledge remains as strong as ever.
A native of Argyle, Tex., Chalk committed to the Tigers during the Dabo Swinney Football Camp before recently returning to Tigertown to take in the UNC game.
"It was the first game I have ever been to at Clemson so the highlight was just getting to see the whole game day scene," he tells CUTigers.
Chalk, like many other recruits, has been very impressed with freshman signal caller Deshaun Watson. Watson currently leads the country in quarterback rating and has changed the complexion of Clemson's offensive attack.
"I loved watching him play," said Chalk. "I love this style of play and how he throws the ball."
Chalk took in a Texas A&M game earlier this year and has plans to see Ole Miss later this season. The Rebels offered him two weeks ago, and A&M is starting show heavy interest, but he insists his commitment is firm.
"It is," he said. "My commitment is 110 percent all in with Clemson."
Through his first four games this season, Chalk has made eight catches for 73 yards for undefeated Argyle HS. At the time of his commitment, Arizona State, Colorado State and Duke had also offered.
Chalk's grandfather is Gene Stallings, Dabo Swinney's head coach during his playing days at Alabama.
