Humphries commits to Clemson

Clemson picked up a commitment from Dorman wide receiver Adam Humphries on Saturday afternoon, making it No. 10 in the 2011 class.

The choice was an easy one, especially for a guy who's grown up pulling for the Tigers on Saturdays in the fall.

In fact, it really didn't take long after Humphries' visit earlier this week for him to ahead and pull the trigger, though he didn't want to rush the decision.

"I just committed like five minutes ago," he told CUTigers Saturday afternoon.

"I sat down with my parents right after the visit. We thought about it, prayed about it and we said there's really not another school that could beat Clemson out.

"There was no point in waiting to commit so I went ahead and committed."

Humphries called wide receivers coach/recruiting coordinator Jeff Scott to deliver the news.

"He put me on the phone with Dabo (Swinney) and I told him. That made it official," Humphries said. "They sounded pretty excited."

As far as other visits go, he'd thought about getting out and seeing other places, but that may no longer be the case.

"I'm just going to keep working hard in the weight room and getting better," Humphries said. "That's what my plans are right now."

Last week, Dorman competed in a 7-on-7 tournament at Georgia, where Humphries and his teammates finished third.

"I had a few touchdown catches. I didn't have any interceptions, but I think I had six touchdowns, all day," he said.

Humphries maxes in the weight room: 285 on bench press, a 375 squat and 255-pound power clean.

He'll join former Dorman teammate and current red shirt freshman Brandon Thomas at Clemson in 2011. Humphries is also teammates with four-star wide receiver Charone Peake.

Humphries recorded 46 tackles with five interceptions during his junior season, including the game-winning pick in the state championship game win over Byrnes. Top Stories
