Center Ryan Norton commits to Clemson


Mauldin's Ryan Norton (6'4, 275, 5.1 40'), considered the best Center prospect in the state of S.C., has committed to Clemson. He graded out over 93% as a junior and is in zero danger of not qualifying. He has offers from Georgia Tech, NC State, Maryland, Illinois, and Sakerlina. His recruiter of record is Andre Powell, but he had significant exposure to Brad Scott. He should be the only interior lineman we take in this class, I know they were looking to take only one Center, with the rest as Tackles.

Scout rates him at 3-stars, the #14 C nationally.

Its not really a surprise, his grandfather is a Clemson alum.

TNet has the quotes.

  "Tonight, I just had that gut feeling that I wanted to ahead and commit because Clemson is just the best fit for me. Coach Swinney was very excited and welcomed me into the Clemson family."

Norton said that being able to make such a huge decision with family and friends around made it even better.

"They were all excited," he said. "They knew I really liked Clemson and they were all congratulating me and stuff. I wanted to go ahead and commit now because from now on I just want to focus on my team, and I don’t want anything else on my mind. But I am very excited to be a Clemson Tiger."

From the little film of him that I've seen, he appears to have very good hip flexibility and stays low, and is a powerful run blocker.
