Miami native Demerick Chancellor committed to Clemson recruiting coordinator David Blackwell and running backs coach Burton Burns during an in-home visit earlier this evening.

The senior running back rushed for over 800 yards on just 86 carries this past season, and also scored 16 touchdowns.

Chancellor becomes the 23rd commitment in the 2005 recruiting class.

"I committed to today," Chancellor told CUTigers.com in an interview. "Clemson has always been at the top. I got tired of waiting. I told them I wanted to commit. Coach Blackwell and Coach Burns came by the house.

"They were real happy. They said they couldn't wait until I get up there."

Chancellor also admitted that he's glad the recruiting process is over. "I'm glad it's over. Clemson will be my only visit I am going to take now."

Chancellor finally added, "My mom is real excited. She liked the coaches. She is excited because I have a lot of family in Anderson."

The three-star running back also held offers from N.C. State, Auburn, Syracuse, and Rutgers. He is set to visit the Tigers officially on Jan. 14.
