DL Christian Wilkins (6-5 305) of Suffield, CT, an Under Armour All American and regarded as one of the top defensive tackles in the country for the 2015 class, announced a commitment to Clemson Monday afternoon on his Twitter account.
"Today I would like to announce my verbal commitment to Clemson University," is how Wilkins put it.
National recruiting analysts did not see this one coming. Penn State or Ohio State appeared to be the choice.
Wilkins made an official visit to Clemson November 21st. He also made official visits to Stanford, Penn State, Boston College and Ohio State.
He gives Clemson 24 commitments in the 2015 class including three grayshirts who join the program this semester.
