Georgia DL Grady Jarrett Commits to Clemson

Grady Jarrett (6'2 280) of Conyers GA committed to the Tigers today soon after receiving his offer from Dabo. He's rated a 2-star by Rivals and hasn't picked up much more interest in the Spring Evaluation Period, but he is on campus with a ton of guys rated at 4-stars right now, and they are saying he is really holding his own and blowing people up in 1on1s. I think this one is a diamond in the rough player.

Jarrett plays Strongside DE for Rockdale but he will be moved to DT at Clemson. From the film they appear to be a multiple-front but 3-4 based team, so a DE is almost the same as a DT. Now when we get Philip Dukes we are likely done on the D-line. I wouldn't be surprised if Jerome Maybank ended up at OG now either, he has a Guard's body already anyway.

Looking at his film, I'm having a hard time seeing why he was rated at just 2-stars. Perhaps it was his lack of height, and lack of pure speed (5.1 40), but he keeps his pads low, explodes out of his stance, and appears to manhandle whomever is matched across from him. He looks more like a NT than a 3-tech but he'll play both.

Last year he had 101 tackles, 18.5 sacks and over 30 TFL.
