The Clemson coaching staff has landed its seventh verbal commitment for the recruiting class of 2008. The in-state prospect said yes to wide receivers coach and recruiter Dabo Swinney and head football coach Tommy Bowden earlier this evening. The commitment, as first reported by Tiger Illustrated, becomes the third for the Tigers from the Palmetto State, joining DaQuan Bowers and Marquan Jones.
