CLEMSON — Kendall Joseph promised he’d announce his college decision Monday morning at 8 a.m., and as many recruiting web sites predicted, Joseph tweeted “Officially committed to Clemson University.”

The 3-star-rated Joseph is listed as 6-foot-1 and 228 pounds. A Belton Honea Path product an hour southeast of Clemson, Joseph becomes the third linebacker in the 2014 class, next to four-star prospects Chris Register from North Carolina and Korie Rogers out of Georgia.

Joseph also held offers from Duke, Georgia Tech, Louisville and UCLA, per Scout.com.

Two of Clemson’s projected starting linebackers this fall are seniors – Spencer Shuey and Quandon Christian.

The Tigers now have 12 players verbally committed to the program. Signing Day 2014 is a little less than eight months away.
