CUTigers.com has confirmed that wide receiver T.J. Williams, a former verbal commitment to Clemson, is off the board for the Clemson Tigers in the 2006 recruiting class.
Williams, orginally out of Leon High School in Tallahasse, Fla. signed with Clemson last February but was unable to qualify academically. He moved on to Fork Union Military this past fall and was still considered a verbal commitment to the Tigers until the past few days when he signed his Letter of Intent to play football at Michigan State.
By signing a Letter of Intent, Williams has officially ended his recruitment to any school and he is no longer considered to be "on the board" for the Clemson Tigers.
With Williams out of the picture, that leaves Clemson with 17 verbal commitments for the Tigers in the 2006 recruiting class. Based on current scholarship numbers, Clemson is expected to sign approximately 20-21 prospects this year.
CUTigers.com will have more on this breaking story later this evening.
