Earlier in November Clemson verbal commitment A.J. Harmon was having second thoughts about his commitment to the Tigers.

Not anymore.

"I am 100 percent Clemson. I will be going to Clemson," said Harmon.

The 6-6, 330 pound prospect plans to make an official announcement at his football banquet in January, but his destination is not in question.

"These people swear up and down that I am going to Georgia," he said. "I told them I will tell everyone at my banquet. We are trying to raise money. I am still going to make an announcement at the banquet, but I am going to Clemson."

Is there anything that could change Harmon's mind?

"No, I am going to Clemson," replied Harmon.

The senior season ended for A.J. and Jefferson County last week.

"We had a playoff game Friday night. We lost so now I am done," said Harmon.

The Clemson coaching staff visited with Harmon at Jefferson County earlier this week.

"Coach Napier and coach Rumph came by the school. I enjoyed seeing coach Rumph and spending more time with him. It was good seeing him face to face. He is a real cool cat. He is down to earth. I can take a coach like that," said Harmon.

The Georgia standout says Clemson fans can look forward to the "fantastic four."

"When I get there we are going to turn it up. We are going to have the 'fantastic four.' That is what the will call us if we get Brandon Thompson to join us," said Harmon.

Of course Harmon is refering to what should be ranked the No. 1 defensive line class in the nation in Brandon Thompson, Harmon, DaQuan Bowers and JUCO defensive end Jarrett Crittenton.

Harmon has been working to get Thompson, who remains publicly uncommitted, to join him at Clemson since he committed this summer.

"I haven't been talking with him the past few weeks. They are still in the playoffs so I haven't bugged him. I will let him concentrate on his team," said the prize recruit.

After the recent visit to Clemson, A.J. says his mother is also comfortable with his decision.

"My mom loved all of them. They all had great academics. She was a little concerned about the drive to Clemson. She is alright now. She knows she can come see me play. She is okay with my decision now," said Harmon.

The pressure will continue until signing day for Harmon.

"I am still getting lots of pressure. I get it every day from people around here. Everyone is for Georgia. I am going to Clemson though," said Harmon.

The talented athlete will play in at least one All-star game and then hit the court.

"I am waiting to see if I will get to the US Army All American game. I will be in the Georgia North South game. I am going to play basketball, but I won't start until I get finished with football," said Harmon.
