The Clemson Tigers added another offensive lineman to their 2015 recruiting class yesterday, with the commitment of North Carolina product Logan Tisch.
Tisch is joining the Tigers as a preferred walk-on, so he will not take up one of Clemson’s limited number of scholarships. Rivals shows that Tisch only received scholarship offers from Davidson, Cambell and Pennsylvania but he did visit the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Boston College Eagles, according to Clemson Insider.
Tisch is listed at 6-foot-2, 289 pounds, so he seems to have decent size, even if he is bit shorter than most ACC offensive linemen . Perhaps Dabo Swinney has uncovered a diamond in the rough here. In any case, with the limited space remaining in the 2015 class, adding a near-300 lb. offensive lineman without losing a scholarship is a good thing. He spurned scholarship offers to other schools to pay his own way at Clemson, so that probably says something about his desire to play high-level college football. If he works hard, perhaps he will be able to help the program, in some capacity.
Of course, the watch continues for the next scholarship athlete to join the 2015 Clemson football recruiting class. As expected, Trent Thompson committed to the Georgia Bulldogs last night. With that now confirmed, perhaps Swinney will move quickly to add another defensive lineman. For now, Clemson’s class ranks No. 3 in the nation and No. 1 in the ACC in 247 Sports’ composite rankings.
