OT Isaiah Battle Profile
CUTigers has confirmed that Isaiah Battle, a 2011 offensive tackle from Blue Ridge School in Virginia has committed to Clemson.
Battle was in Tigertown for the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.
CUTigers spoke with Blue Ridge School head coach Del Smith, who was on hand as one of the coaches for the camp.
"He's still very raw, as far as his football I.Q.," Smith said of Battle. "I think his sheer athleticism is what sets him apart from some of the big men in the country. He's extremely competitive and willing to listen and learn and get better.
"I think that's going to play to his favor here down the stretch."
He began to get the sense that Battle could be committing to Clemson before leaving campus. And that's a testament to what Smith saw from the Tigers' coaching staff.
"The coaching staff at Clemson, you can tell everybody is on the same page. There's definitely a family feel. They all seem like they've got the best jobs in the world," Smith said. "Nobody has a hidden agenda. It's just comforting to see that. If you send a player there, he's going to be on a staff that cares and genuinely has an interest in their well-being."
Battle, who's originally from Brooklyn, N.Y., came to Blue Ridge via the Boys Club in New York City.
