2021 RB Phil Mafah announced his commitment to Clemson Thursday night, posting this photo during an unofficial visit.

Running back Phil Mafah (6-1 215) of Loganville, GA committed to Clemson Thursday night ahead of the Tigers’ season opener against Georgia Tech. Mafah, a member of the 2021 class, committed to Clemson while on an unofficial visit to campus. He’s Clemson’s first commitment for the 2021 class and is one of two running backs the Tigers have offered in the class.

Mafah was injured in his game last week and is out for this week and thus was able to leave his team and make the Georgia Tech game. Mafah has been a frequent visitor to Clemson over the years and a regular camp participant.

According to MaxPreps, in 10 games last season Mafah rushed for 720 yards and 10 touchdowns averaging over 8 yards per carry. Mafah chose Clemson over offers from USC, Arkansas, Baylor, Duke, Michigan, Georgia Tech, Georgia, Texas, Texas A&M and Tennessee.
