The Tigers picked up a commitment Monday from four-star inside linebacker Kendall Joseph (Honea Path, S.C./Belton-Honea Path), according to multiple reports.
Appalachian State, Duke, Furman, Georgia Tech, Louisville and UCLA also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot, 227-pound prospect. South Carolina and Vanderbilt showed interest.
Joseph posted a 4.38 20-yard shuttle, 27.8-inch vertical and 35.5-foot power throw on this spring's Nike circuit. Additionally, the Post and Courier writes that he's a three-time state weightlifting champion who bench presses 350 pounds and squats 480.
Last season, he registered 129 total tackles, six tackles for loss and 10 quarterback hurries.
Clemson now has 12 pledges for 2014 and the country's 10th best class, according to ESPN RecruitingNation. The Tigers have secured seven players from the newly released ESPN 300, and three four-stars from outside the 300.
