While sitting with coaches Dabo Swinney, Jeff Scott and his mother, Davis committed to the orange and purple while on an unofficial visit in Clemson on Friday.

"I know where I'm going now. I can just concentrate on my season. It's over, I already know where I'm prepared to go," he said.

Davis is the ninth player in the 2010 class to commit to the Tigers. His commitment will free up any distractions that come along with the recruiting process, which could help Davis and his Chester HS teammates to make a push for a third straight Upper State Championship.

Ranked the No. 26 offensive guard prospect in the nation according to Scout.com, Davis also wanted to commit on Friday because he's gotten so comfortable with the Clemson coaches. The 6-5, 330 pound lineman chose the Tigers over his No. 2 school Wake Forest, which he visited on Thursday.

"I really felt like that it was the right place for me when I made the decision," he said. "I'm not going to regret anything. I knew what I was doing when I committed. I feel like that's where I want to be at."

Though he projects as a guard by Scout.com, Davis could play there or at tackle. The Clemson coaches aren't sure either. They'll wait and see when he gets to campus next year.

"They feel like I could play left tackle or left guard, but we'll just see what happens," Davis said.

After another tour of the campus and new facilities in the West End Zone Friday morning, he was ready seal the deal. Most importantly, mom is all in too.

"My mom is all for it. She's the one who really like the Clemson program," Davis said. "I know she's cool with it."
