Finally, Darius Robinson is a Tiger.

The three-star cornerback from Westlake High School (Ga.), who has been favoring Clemson for weeks, ended his recruitment earlier this week, officially giving his verbal commitment to the Clemson coaching staff, but only formally announced his decision today.

He chose the Tigers over Miami, Stanford, Kentucky and Central Florida.

"I just feel like Clemson is the place where I can play big time football early," he told CUTigers. "I vibe real good with the Clemson family and when I'm there I just feel like it's a college football town.

"Everyone loves the football team at Clemson and I just feel like that's going to give me the best chance to be successful."


Darius Robinson is ranked by Scout.com as the No. 49 cornerback prospect in the nation.
Robinson finished his junior season with 43 tackles and three interceptions. He benches 225, squats 435 and claims a 35" vertical jump.

He plans to major in business or finance at Clemson and also reports a 3.4 core GPA and a 1370 SAT.

He spoke more about his decision with CUTigers:

"I felt like I had a really relationship with the coaches at Clemson," he added. "On my visit there I really felt like I got to know everyone and it all felt like family to be honest with you.

"Plus the facilities at Clemson were great. We were really impressed by that."

Robinson is the 14th verbal commitment for the Tigers in the 2010 recruiting class.

Once thought to be a lock for Miami, Robinson added he's just happy to have this all behind him.

"I'm glad to have it over with," he said.
