Marion Dukes of Pickens season may have come to an end in the playoffs, but his weekend at Clemson helped firm up his commitment to the Tigers.

"I had a great time at the game," said Dukes. "I'm firm with Clemson. I just want to take a couple of visits to schools just to see what they're like. I've set a visit to Georgia on 12-13 and South Carolina on 1-13. I may try to visit Maryland as well."

Dukes is a strong interior lineman that specializes in run blocking.

Dukes committed to the Tigers back on October 16th and had the following to say about Clemson University.

"Well, it has pretty much always been home for me, and when I was little I always wanted to be a Tiger. You know, I have the chance now, why blow it? I wanted to think more about the rest of our season here and concentrate on my school work too," said Dukes.

Offensive line coach Ron West remains in close contact with Dukes as the senior begins his preparations for the Shrine Bowl later in December.
