The Clemson Tigers received some good news Sunday morning.

Check that, make that great news.

James Davis, one of the top prospects on the board for Clemson in the 2005 recruiting class, gave his verbal commitment to head coach Tommy Bowden.

"I talked with Coach Bowden earlier this morning and told him about my decision. He was very excited. He said he was glad I made that decision," said Davis.

"You know I pretty much liked Clemson the whole time. I just wanted to see what they had to offer this weekend. I talked ot the new offensive coordinator a lot. He told me how much they can get me the ball and how it will be a wide open offense."

Davis also talked about what made Clemson more attractive than some of the other schools actively recruiting him.

"They (Clemson) showed me all the things the other schools showed, plus they are only one and a half hours from home. My mom wouldn't make the long trip to Virginia Tech. At Alabama they have like six running backs already. I feel like I have a good chance to play real early at Clemson."

Davis added that he's glad that he's now got his decision behind him.

"I've been trying to get this over with for a while. I kind of had it in my mind that this might be the last one. I'm glad it's over now."

The Atlanta native also has some potential good news on two other Clemson targets.

"I know Ray-Ray was very excited. He's solid as well. We are both going to try to talk to Antonio Clay to see if he we can sway him too," added the four-star running back.

Davis, who re-affirmed that he would not be taking anymore official visits, was hosted this weekend by Clemson running back Duane Coleman.
