One of the key prospects currently committed to the Tigers who was expected to enroll at Clemson this month, has changed his plans.

Clemson verbal commitment Jonathan Meeks watched his future teammates battle Nebraska on television on New Year's day at the Konica Minolta Gator Bowl Thursday afternoon.

"I watched the Gator Bowl. Clemson played pretty good. I especially liked how they played defensively. We should have won that one," Meeks told CUTigers.com Friday.

The former Rock Hill standout had hoped to enroll at Clemson in January, but that plan has changed.

"I had some problems with the classes at Hargrave. I took half credit classes instead of full credit classes. I am going to take the class I need here in Rock Hill instead of going back to Hargrave," said Meeks.

"I should be finished with the class by March. I will enroll in May."

The prep star spent the holidays with his family in Rock Hill.

"I had a good New Year's," he said. "I spent the day with my mom and my dad. We I was with my mom and dad. We spent some time at church. I watched a lot of bowl games."

The prize recruit plans to work hard to make sure he is ready to compete when he steps on campus this summer.

"I will be working out with my track coach and my dad. My dad works me hard, especially in the weight room," said Meeks.

That hard work should pay off as Clemson will need all the help it can get in the secondary with the loss of both starting safeties in Mike Hamlin and Chris Clemons.

And last but not least, is the four-star safety still firm with Clemson?

"Yes, I am still firm. I will definitely be enrolling in May," replied Meeks.
