According to sources close to the situation, wide receivers coach Dabo Swinney picked a bit of good news this past weekend when Mountain Brook (Ala.) defensive end Drew Traylor pledged a verbal commitment to the Clemson Tigers.

Traylor is the second defensive end to commit to Clemson for the 2007 recruiting class. The Tigers also have a commitment from Georgia native Rennie Moore.

Clemson is expected to sign three defensive ends next February.

As a junior, Traylor recorded 61 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, and five quarterback sacks. He was also a Class 5A All-State selection and played in the Alabama Junior All-Star game.

Traylor, who visited Clemson unofficially in June, said at the time he enjoyed hanging out with two current Tigers from his area.

"Yeah I have some connections with a few players," he said. "Tyler Grisham played in my region. Tribble went to my high school. We talked about how they like it up there. Tribble has been in town the past few weeks. We talked some before the visit as well. He loves it up there."

Traylor chose the Tigers over offers from South Carolina, Kentucky, Duke, Vanderbilt and Northwestern, among others.

Traylor was unavailable for comment as of early Tuesday morning.
