"I Am a Tiger"

The Clemson Tigers picked up a commitment from Hargrave defensive end Miguel Chavis just prior to the basketball game Saturday afternoon. CUTigers.com spoke with Chavis right after the commitment and we have all the details.

The prep standout gave the Clemson coaching staff the good news right before today's basketball game against Boston College.

"Yeah I committed to Clemson just a few minutes ago. I did it right before the basketball game. I told coach Rumph, coach Swinney and coach Bowden. They told me to stop playing games with them. I told them I was serious that I was going to be a Tiger. They started slapping hands and doing high fives," Chavis told CUTigers.com.

The time was right for the commitment according to the prize recruit.

"Basically it was the right time," he said. "It was my last visit. I just felt comfortable at Clemson. They have a great program. It is a great place for me to get my degree. I am an outdoors kind of guy. It is close to home. They play in the ACC and will play teams close to home. It is just the right place for me."

Georgia held the lead before the official visit to Clemson, but Chavis is now very firm with his commitment to the Tigers.

"It was a no brainer," he added. "I am here. This is the right place for me. I am a Tiger."
