The Clemson recruiting train continues to roll right along as Monday night the Tigers picked up their 18th verbal commitment - Spruce Creek (Fla.) LB Jeremy Campbell.

"I just made the call to coach Hobby not that long ago," Campbell told CUTigers.com. "He was very excited. Me and my dad talked when I got back from Kansas. We decided Clemson was the best place for me.

"When I was there (at Clemson) I felt at home. I felt like I do when I am here. I felt like I was at home with the guys."

Campbell, who had just returned from an official visit to Kansas this past weekend, said his visit to the midwest was chilly.

"It was cold," he said. "After that, I just sat down with my dad and made the decision. I just want to start a new part of my life. I want to see what that part of my life holds for me."

Campbell officially visited Purdue (10/8), Louisville (11/11), and Clemson (9/16) before making his trip to Kansas.

Campbell, who recorded 85 total tackles during his senior campaign, becomes the second linebacker to verbally commit to the Tigers in the 2006 recruiting class. Clemson also has a commitment from Gaffney LB Julius Wilkerson.

The future Tigers linebacker also projects as a full qualifier academically with a 3.7 GPA.
