OL R.J. Prince Profile
The offensive tackle from Albemarle, N.C. committed to Clemson over offers from North Carolina, North Carolina State, and South Carolina.
"I felt I just needed to pull the trigger. The atmosphere was just perfect. I really feel like home down there," Prince told CUTigers.com. "I really feel like home down there. I had fans, players, coaches and even the coaches' families giving me hugs. It was really special."
Clemson was the first school to offer the Albemarle High School junior this summer.
Prince visited Clemson for the Florida State game this season -- his first game day experience in Death Valley.
The 6-foot-6, 285-pound junior committed to offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell after Clemson's 59-38 win over North Carolina Saturday.
"I talked with coach [Dabo] Swinney and his words had a major impact on my decision as well," he said of his decision Saturday.
The massive lineman is the first public verbal commitment to Clemson in the 2013 recruiting class.
