Anthony McDaniel Commits to Clemson

Keenan defensive lineman Anthony McDaniel has commited to Clemson University. McDaniel returned from his trip to Tennessee this weekend and decided that he knew where he was going all along. Details on this announcement will be made available throughout today.

McDaniel was selected to the Shrine Bowl this past year after posting almost 100 tackles and 16 sacks during his senior season at Columbia's Keenan High School.

It was at the Palmetto state's top all-star game where McDaniel really began to assert himself on the national scene. He was easily one of the biggest players on the field, and he dominated during the week of practice leading up to the game.

After the Shrine Bowl, McDaniel indicated that Clemson was his favorite, and he maintained the Tigers as his top school throughout most of the recruiting process.

It is believed that McDaniel will get a crack at defensive end once he arrives on campus, but he has the ability to play at almost any position on the defensive line.

McDaniel becomes the first defensive line commitment for Clemson this year, and the 13th verbal commitment overall. TheInsiders.com currently lists McDaniel as a three star prospect, the #60 defensive lineman in the country, and the #15 prospect in the state of South Carolina.

Anthony chose Clemson over Tennessee, Georgia, and South Carolina.
