As the old saying goes, "The rich keep getting richer", and Clemson most certainly just added to its wealth.


Monday Afternoon, 4-star 2020 offensive tackle Mitchell Mayes announced his commitment to the Tigers on Twitter. 

Mayes, who measures in at 6-5, 315 pounds, was ranked as the 17th best offensive tackle in his class and 149th overall by Rivals. Mayes becomes the eighth recruit, and seventh 4-star recruit in the 2020 class to verbally commit to ​Clemson


It's also worth noting Mayes is the third 4-star offensive lineman from the 2020 class to commit to the Tigers.


Mayes is a big pull for Clemson, not because he is truly a standout recruit, but because of the other colleges they beat out to get him. Clemson managed to land Mayes over SEC powerhouses Auburn and ​Georgia, as well as Penn State from the Big Ten. 

Clemson is off to a strong start for its 2020 class. Expect more big names to join Mayes for what figures to be another HUGE group of studs who will sign with the Tigers.
