#STRecruiting: LB Sammy Brown commits to #Clemson

Sammy Brown

Clemson is expected to gain several commitments from this past weekend’s gathering of official visits, and the first to come forward publicly is LB Sammy Brown (6-2 220) of Jefferson, GA. He picked the Tigers over Tennessee, Georgia, Oklahoma and Ohio State, the five schools with which he had scheduled official visits.

He went to Tennessee the last weekend in May and canceled his other trips after deciding during his Clemson visit that he had found the place where he wanted to be.

“I had a great time just connecting with the coaches and players and really the commits, too,” Brown said. “The reason I committed is because I felt it was God’s will to go to Clemson. Something about this weekend just made it click that Clemson was the place. I talked to my parents about it Saturday evening, which is when I kinda knew. They were very happy for me because they know Clemson is a great place.”

Brown was one of the most heavily recruited linebackers in the country. He’s also a very good running back, and an accomplished sprinter in track as well. He had his pick of the nation when it came to choosing a school, and Clemson won out over a top-heavy group.

“I think any of the other four schools would have been a great choice,” Brown said. “They were all good to me and were very positive of my decision. A lot of congratulations and whatnot. But I think what made Clemson the choice was nothing short of God’s will.”

Brown is the ninth commitment for the Tigers in the 2024 recruiting class, and the sixth defender, joining linebacker Drew Woodaz, defensive lineman Champ Thompson, cornerback Tavoy Feagin, safety Noah Dixon, and defensive lineman Hevin Brown-Shuler.

Last season Brown had 113 tackles with five tackles for loss and four pass deflections. He also rushed for 1459 yards and 21 touchdowns.
