Hargrave defensive back commits to Clemson

Clemson has added the commitment of defensive back Jonathan Meeks, a highly rated defensive back from Hargrave Military in Chatham, Va., who also played for Rock Hill High. He also visited North Carolina and N.C. State and considered a number of other schools.

Meeks, who is 6-foot-2 and 193 pounds, has 4.5-second speed in the 40- yard dash. He chose the Tigers Sunday, at the conclusion of his official visit. He is new coach Dabo Swinney's first commitment and No. 9 in the Tigers' current class.

He's expected to play safety for Clemson.
