Clemson reached into Ohio for the 2018 class to take OL Jackson Carman away from Ohio State. Now for the 2019 class, the Tigers have gone into Michigan and pulled a top prospect away from the Wolverines in DE Ruke Orhorhoro (6-5 250) of River Rouge, MI. The native of Nigeria chose the Tigers over Michigan, Kentucky and Indiana and made his final decision after attending a camp visit this week.
“I had an amazing time. It was great. I could tell that the people were genuine,” Orhorhoro said. “I hung out with Coach V (Brent Venables) and Coach Swinney a lot. I got to know some of the players. I came with my high school coaches and we had a really fun time. It’s great down there.”
“The facility is amazing and the campus itself was beautiful,” he continued. “It’s in a secluded area and it’s a college town, so the focus can be not only on my development as a player, but as a student and as a man.”
Orhorhoro is the 15th commitment for Clemson’s 2019 class and the first for a defensive end position.
“They were just telling me how they love me not only as a player but as a person. I’m genuine and I have good grades. They were telling me that I fit their scheme,” he said.
Orhorhoro visited Kentucky last weekend and cancelled his plans for visits to Michigan and Indiana.
