A busy week in the recruiting lane continued for the Clemson football program with Vic Burley, No. 61 on the ESPN 300, signing for Dabo Swinney’s Tigers on Wednesday.
Burley is a 6-foot-5, 270-pound defensive tackle from Warner Robins High School in Warner Robins, Georgia.
“Just the Clemson structure,” Burley said in an interview with CBS Sports HQ after his announcement. “What they have there is similar to what we have here at Warner Robins – the focus on the player and personal development there also attracted me.”
He selected Clemson among his other three finalists – Georgia, Michigan State and Tennessee.
Burley’s commitment comes two days after linebacker Jamal Anderson, a fellow Georgia prep and ESPN 300 prospect, agreed to play in Death Valley.
“[Swinney] just said, ‘You could play right away when you’re here and just be dominant and help us win games,'” Burley told CBS Sports HQ. “I just got into that.”
Burley becomes the Tigers’ fourth ESPN 300 recruit in the 2023 class — alongside quarterback Christopher Vizzina (No. 79), Anderson (No. 123) and defensive end David Ojiegbe (No. 246).
ESPN 300 wide receiver Nathaniel Joseph (No. 142), who originally signed for Clemson in September 2021, announced Tuesday night that he would resume recruiting.
