    Four-star defensive tackle Josh Belk committed to Clemson on Sunday morning, giving the Tigers five total commits in the 2018 recruiting class. 


    Even with National Signing Day looking over his shoulder, Dabo Swinney and his staff are beginning to look forward to the next recruiting cycle.

    On Sunday morning, 4-star prospect Josh Belk committed to Clemson. Now, the Tigers have five total commits in their 2018 recruiting class.

    Belk, who’s from Richburg, South Carolina, is ranked as the No. 9 defensive tackle and No. 106 overall player in the 2018 cycle. He released a statement regarding his decision to give Clemson his pledge.

    “What an extreme honor and privilege it has been to visit various colleges who have shown interest in me. Thank you to each of you. I am grateful and humbly blessed more than any words could ever express. The faculty and staff at each university have been kind professional and respectful towards my family and I. The decision to commit to a college has not bee something that I have taken lightly. After much time and prayerful debate with my family, I am excited to announce that Clemson University is where I will seek to expand my education. Again, I thank each and every one of you for your time and willingness to help me achieve my goals. Your support is greatly appreciated.”

    The addition of Belk comes one day after the Tigers picked up a commitment from 4-star prospect Derion Kendrick, the No. 3 athlete and No. 95 overall player in the 2018 class.

    While Swinney’s team is currently ranked at No. 19 for the 2017 class, he and his staff have already laid the foundation for a big haul in 2018.
