The number one ranked recruit for 2018 committed to the Clemson Tigers this morning. Xavier Thomas is from Florence and attended Wilson High until he transferred to IMG Academy in Brandenton, Florida. Tony Morrell (247 Sports) flipped his crystal ball prediction shortly before Thomas’ announcement. Xavier Thomas grew up a South Carolina fan from all reports, so this is another huge victory for Clemson on the recruiting trail.

In other news, the White team beat the Orange team in an entertaining yet lopsided edition of the Sons of Clemson Bowl by a score of 38-12.
