One of the primary reasons Clemson Football has found success in the last decade is the amount of talent that has committed to the Tigers on the defensive line.
Players like Christian Wilkins, Dexter Lawrence and Clelin Ferrell have been drafted high in the NFL Draft. Brian Bresee and Myles Murphy are expected to be drafted early in the 2023 draft. Peter Wood has Tiger Nation excited for his future in Death Valley.
Clemson’s latest commitment hopes to continue that trend.
Class of 2024 defensive tackle Hevin Brown-Shuler has announced his commitment to the Tigers.
Brown-Shuler is a 4-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite. He plays for Pace Academy in Atlanta, Georgia. He is 6’-4” and 290 pounds.
Brown-Shuler, who’s nickname is ‘Hevy Duty’, is the 125th ranked player in the nation by 247.
He was one of the first players from the Class of 2024 that was offered a scholarship by Clemson. 247 says he had 37 total scholarship offers, including Georgia, USC, Ohio State, and Michigan. His Top 13 list also included South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia.
Brown-Shuler’s junior season Hudl highlights quickly demonstrate his potential. His run-stuffing ability stands out quickly, which is important for a defensive tackle. He does rush the quarterback off the edge on occasion, but inside is typically where he lines up.
With his frame, he has an obvious advantage over opponents who aren’t as big. When he is matched against a player who can match size vs size, he isn’t as quick to overwhelm them.
Being 290 pounds already before his senior season begins, one can imagine the force Brown-Shuler might become with another year of high school and then strength training at Clemson.
Brown-Shuler is the eighth Clemson verbal commitment for the Class of 2024, and the second defensive tackle alongside Champ Thompson of Norcross, Georgia. Brown-Shuler is the third commitment from Georgia in this cycle.
Brown-Shuler’s announcement comes quickly after the commitment of linebacker Drew Woodaz, giving the Tigers two commits in three days.
Several prospects have said they plan to visit Clemson in early June, which indicates the Tigers plan to host recruits on official visits like they did in 2022. If those visits are successful, we can expect more players to join Clemson’s 2024 class this summer.
