Powder Springs (Ga.) McEachern lineman Etta Etta-Tawo knew where he wanted to go, and decided to make a commitment to become a Clemson Tiger.
"It was just that after a while it got on my mind that this recruiting stuff is getting to where I just made up my mind that Clemson was the place to go," said the 6-foot-3, 294 pounder. "I liked the way Coach West had been calling me and showing a lot of interest. After watching that South Carolina game, that is what what triggered my mind to set that goal (to commit)."
Etta-Tawo actually committed Tuesday of last week, but another call from Coach West sealed the deal this evening.
"Coach West was real excited about it. When I committed, he was going to talk to Coach Tommy Bowden about it and call me back to find out what happens from here. He just called me back about 30 minutes ago and he said that he's coming down to my school on Tuesday to talk to my coaches and talk to me about it."
A visit to Duke was on the schedule for the first weekend in December, but that is most likely not going to happen.
"I'm probably done with visits, just take the visit to Clemson."
Will the Tigers Take Etta-Tawo?
