TE Jay Jay McCullough (6-5 235) of Nation Ford committed to Clemson Thursday. McCullough picked the Tigers over offers from USC, Alabama, Miami, East Carolina, Connecticut, NC State, Duke and Kentucky.
McCullough also plays running back in high school. Last season he had 35 catches for 300 yards and 6 touchdowns while rushing for 544 yards and 9 touchdowns.
"He's aggressive and does a great job in the open field," said Nation Ford coach Michael Allen. "He'll play in the slot and at wide receiver as a senior. He has great hands, great speed and is an excellent jumper."
McCullough is the 17th commitment for Clemson's 2012 class including two players from the 2011 class the Tigers placed in prep school and plan to resign. He's also the Tigers 10th commitment from South Carolina.
