Tigers Land Three More Commitments

As it stands early Monday, the Tigers have landed three more commitments to the 2002 class, and they're all outstanding defenders. Updates on these three gentlemen as well as other athletes considering the Tigers are contained in this report. (updated late Sunday evening)

Donnell Clark and Vontrel Jamison have indicated that they will be future Clemson football players.

Clark (6'2, 240) is a strong linebacker out of Griffin High School in Griffin, Georgia.

"I really like the atmosphere and the school," said Clark. Coach Allison was my recruiter," says Clark. As of now, Donnell still plans to take a trip to Georgia Southern next weekend (1-25). He also has offers from Georgia and Middle Tennessee.

Clark registered 88 tackles with 4 sacks as a junior, and another 80 tackles this past season while helping lead his team to the playoffs.

He is known for his strength in stopping the run and for his quick striking ability while blitzing.

Vontrel Jamison (6'8, 260) is out of Gulf Coast Community College in Mississippi. He recorded 5 sacks and 45 tackles this past season for his team and will have 3 years of eligibility left at Clemson.

He will most likely see time at the defensive end position.

Jamsion, who visited Ole Miss last weekend, will cancel an impending visit to South Carolina. Jamison is orginially out of Holly Hill, SC.

Also, in a late breaking development, DL Brandon Cannon switched his verbal commitment from Maryland over to Clemson. Cannon is widely considered to be one of the top defensive line prospects in the southeast.

Without question, signing Cannon will be a major coup for Tommy Bowden and the Clemson football program. Cannon has also decided not to take any more offical visits, so it appears that there will not be any more surprises in the near future with this incredible athlete.

Chris White, who visited South Carolina this past weekend and reportedly had a good visit will decide sometime this week between SC and Clemson. Coach Bowden and Coach Stockstill will be in in his home Tuesday night and Skip Holtz and will be in on Wednesday night.

In other news, DB Fred Bennett and WR Kelvin Grant did not commit to South Carolina after taking their official visits this weekend. While that may not be huge news, it means that the Tigers may still be in the running for both of these athletes that were one time Clemson leans.

DB/WR Justin Miller has also narrowed down his choices to Clemson, Florida, and Arkansas, with an impending visit to Tennessee this weekend. Miller visited the Tigers last weekend.

OL Stephen Sene has given his verbal commitment to Lou Holtz and the South Carolina Gamecocks. This ends recent speculation that he might be a late Clemson lean. Sene's commitment also means that the Tigers are in a better position to land OL Chris White out of Chester, SC.

White is considered to be a better all-around prospect because of his great footwork and overall strength.

Several more players will be in Clemson beginning Monday through Wednesday on their official visits, and we are fully expecting at least one more commitment to come out of this group.
