The last of the potential immediate commitments emanating from Clemson’s All-In Cookout Friday night popped early this afternoon when CB Andrew Booth of Lawrenceville, GA announced for the Tigers. He is the fifth commitment from prospects who attended the cookout. Booth chose Clemson over Auburn, Georgia and several other major offers including USC, Nebraska, Alabama, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Stanford and Oregon.
“I know exactly where I belong and want to be. I have finally chosen to follow my heart and step through the door God has opened for me,” Booth wrote on his Twitter page. “I have chosen to continue my academic and athletic career at Clemson University.”
The cookout was Booth’s third visit to Clemson this year. He attended a junior day in January and was back for the spring game in April. The Tigers have a need a cornerback in the 2019 class and Booth was able to see that for himself at the spring game.
“I got to see where they are coming from when they said the secondary is thin in spot,” he said. “I got to see that for myself. I’m very close to everybody on that staff and I talked to everybody. We talked about family and how great of a person I am. The atmosphere was great. “I see myself fitting in pretty good.”
Booth also said earlier this year he liked how the Clemson coaches talked to him and he believes what they are selling.
“I felt like they are very authentic,” he said. “Everything they had to say made sense to me. At Clemson, character is very important them. And they like my physicality at the cornerback position and my length.”
Last season Booth had 66 tackles and 4 interceptions. He is the 22nd commitment for Clemson’s 2019 class.
With Booth in the books, Clemson now waits on Saturday’s announcement from LB Spencer Lytle of Bellflower, CA. He’s choosing between the Tigers and Wisconsin.
