—-8:30 a.m.: Mario Goodrich signs with Clemson. Goodrich has officially become a member of the 2018 Clemson football class.

—- Drew Swinney and Ben Batson, sons of Tiger coaches, have signed to Clemson as preferred walk-ons. Carson Donnelly, a safety, also signed as a preferred walk-on.

—-10 a.m.: Patrick Surtain Jr. chooses Alabama. Surtain Jr., the nation’s No. 1 overall cornerback, was down to Alabama and Miami. He chose the Crimson Tide despite being crystal balled to go to LSU. Clemson was in the hunt for a while, but no real surprise here.

—-10 a.m.: Trevon Flowers, a 3-star defensive back, chose Tennessee over Clemson and Kentucky on Wednesday. Flowers wants to play both football and baseball in college. This one is a bit surprising, but we wish him well nonetheless.

—11 a.m.: 4-star linebacker Dax Hollifield chose Virginia Tech over Clemson and UNC. No surprise here. Hollifield’s dad absolutely loved Bud Foster and it was pretty clear for the last month that he’d be a Hokie.

–1 p.m.: 5-star Justyn Ross has announced his decision to be a Clemson Tiger. He chose Clemson over Alabama and Auburn. Ross is the No. 1-rated player out of the state of Alabama.

— 2:45 p.m.: 4-star OL Richard Gouraige announces that he will stay with Florida. He committed to the Gators back in the fall.
