DE Jarrett Crittenton Profile
The Clemson Tigers received their 11th verbal commitment earlier today when North Dakota State defensive end Jarrett Crittenton committed to Clemson assistant coach Chris Rumph.
"I called and talked to coach Rumph. I told him I feel comfortable at Clemson and told him I'd come to Clemson," Crittenton told CUTigers.com about his decision. "He was in a coaching clinic at the time. He told coach Napier and they texted me and said they were excited.
"I also talked with coach Bowden. He was excited and said he was glad I was coming to Clemson."
Crittenton chose the Tigers over offers from Arkansas, Kansas State, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Wisconsin among others.
The addition of Crittenton to the 2008 recruiting class gives the Tigers one of the top defensive line classes in the country. The Clemson coaching staff has already secured the verbal commitments of DaQuan Bowers, a five-star defensive lineman out of Bamberg, S.C., and A.J. Harmon, a four-star prospect from Georgia.
"I have always liked Clemson," added Crittenton. "When they offered I wanted to see what else would come along, but it came down to the fact that I just liked Clemson.
"I am very firm to Clemson. I am solid."
Crittenton is expected to enroll in school in January and will have three years to play two seasons.
North Dakota State head coach Chuck Parsons said of Crittenton, "I'd say that Jarrett is an intense player. He has a lot of range; capable of making plays that come to him and capable of making plays that go away from him. His motor doesn't stop and he plays with great leverage for such a big guy."
