4-Star DT Josh Belk Commits to Clemson

Within 12 hours, Clemson nearly doubled its 2018 commitment list with the two highest rated senior prospects to play in the Palmetto State next year!

The Tigers picked up another huge commitment this weekend, as the #1 DT in South Carolina is now on the Clemson 2018 commit list. He now makes five for the 2018 class, joining Derion Kendrick, who committed less than 24 hours ago, and Trevor Lawrence, Jake Venables and Mike Jones Jr. in the 2018 Clemson class. 

Josh Belk is a low center of gravity, interior bowling ball of a player. If I had to compare him to a past Clemson player, Grady Jarrett springs to mind. Belk is very quick and able to penetrate the line of scrimmage with ease and excels on finding the football.  

Belk, who was long considered a Gamecock lean going into the 2016 season, warmed to the Tigers increasingly over the 2016 season. He took in games versus Louisville and South Carolina with his parents in tow, and Josh built a solid relationship with the Tigers' staff, becoming more and more comfortable in all things Orange. Belk had the family with him again this weekend on this trip to Tiger Town, or Title Town. We  have reached out to Josh to find out how the decision and commitment unfolded, and we'll get that out in the Radar on Tuesday. Belk chose Clemson over offers from Florida State, Florida, Auburn, LSU, Ohio State, Miami, Louisville and South Carolina, among others.
