Committing for the 2010 class were DL Josh Watson (6-5 260) and OL Laurcene Gibson (6-7 300) of Hargrave Prep, VA, and the 2011 class commitment came from OL Shaq Anthony (6-5 255) of Wren, according to

Watson canceled his last remaining official visit with North Carolina. He also visited Boston College and Duke.

"It felt right," Watson said. "Clemson is a great place and I didn't want to waste anyone else's time or mine when I knew I would be a Tiger."

Watson and Gibson give the Tigers 20 commitments for 2010.

Anthony is regarded as one of the state's top prospects for 2011. He also had early offers from USC and Georgia. He's the Tigers's fifth commitment for that class.
