CUTigers.com confirmed earlier this afternoon that Paul Muse has committed to Clemson University. He committed to his primary recruiter for the Tigers, wide receivers' coach Dabo Swinney.

Muse will be at least the second player from First Coast High School in as many years to sign with Clemson. The Tigers also added the services of defensive back Brandon Croley in the 2004 class.

"They were the first to offer," said Muse of Clemson. "Coach Sweeney has been recruiting me since I was a sophomore."

Muse currently has scholarship offers from Auburn, Clemson, Central Florida, and he has recently picked up new offers from Maryland and Georgia Tech.

The Jacksonville standout traveled to Clemson earlier this spring for one of the Saturday scrimmages. "It was nice," said Muse. "I enjoyed it a lot. I talked to Coach Swinney a lot. He showed us around. I also got to talk to Coach Bowden in his office."

Muse is a great blocking tight end but he can also do some damage as a receiver.

"My strength is blocking," said Muse in an interview with CUTigers.com earlier this year. "I also have the ability to get in the open field and make big catches."

The Tigers are also recruiting Muse's teammate Ryan Stamper, among others, and the two First Coast stars have discussed playing together in college.

"Me and Ryan have talked about it. It boils down to what is the best situation. If we can play together great, if not we will go our separate ways."

Much more to come on this big announcement, later this afternoon!
