Orangeburg-Wilkinson offensive lineman Jamal Medlin must have liked what he saw this weekend.
After taking his official visit to Clemson this weekend, Medlin gave his verbal commitment to the Tigers.
"I just really enjoyed the program," said Medlin of his visit to Clemson this weekend. "By committing here, I get to stay close to home. I just thought it was the right thing to do. I just feel comfortable there. They have a great program. Players from my school have a good track record there."
Medlin is the 18th verbal commitment to the Tigers in the 2006 recruiting class, and the second offensive lineman.
What did the Clemson coaching staff think about the commitment? According to Medlin, there's a funny story behind how it all went down this morning.
"They seemed very happy. I kind of gave them the run around a little bit. I tried not to show much expression. They asked what I was going to do. I sat there for a minute. Everything got quiet. You could tell there was tension. Then I smiled and told them I was coming to Clemson," he said with a laugh.
The massive lineman, who's commitment had been expected for the last three weeks, was hosted by Cory Lambert this weekend.
Medlin is expected to debut as a three-star prospect by Scout.com later this month.
