Telfort Commits to Clemson

According to reliable sources, Dodge City's Woodly Telfort, an outstanding prospect on the offensive line by, has committed to play football at Clemson University. Telfort will have 4 years to play 3 and will likely battle for a starting position next fall.

It had actually been rumored by several recruits that Telfort actually committed on his official visit on January 10th.

"I spent a lot of time talking to Brian Staley and Woodly Telfort," said Gaddis after getting back home that weekend. "Woodly is definitely coming to Clemson and Staley wants too but he still hasn't made a decision yet."

"We were talking to Woodly, and we were like, you know you are coming to Clemson, and he was like yeah, I know I'm coming here," Gaddis added laughing.

Woodly, orginally out of the Miami area, committed to Pittsburgh out of high school before deciding on going the JUCO route. He'll likely have the opportunity to battle for a starting spot at tackle next fall.

Telfort's verbal commitment is important to Clemso in more ways than one. First, he's a great prospect on the offensive line, which obiviously is a focal point in the 2003 recruiting class. Second, his teammate, Fred Saint-Preux, is down to Clemson and Texas A&M. Saint-Preux is a massive prospect on the defensive line that could also have impact in his first of collegiate football.

It goes without saying that Telfort's decision certainly won't hinder Saint-Preux's recruitment. We will continue to keep you updated on Woodly Telfort, right up through signing day.

Telfort nor his recruiting coordinator, Mr. Andy Siegal could be reached for comment this morning. Top Stories
