Clemson gets commit from Georgia cornerback

Clemson picked up its second commitment of the day and No. 7 for the 2013 class Wednesday night when cornerback David Kamara (Loganville, Ga./Grayson) pledged to head coach Dabo Swinney and his staff.

"I committed to Clemson," Kamara said.

Kamara joins four-star running back Wayne Gallman (Loganville, Ga./Grayson) to give the Tigers two commits from Grayson, the defending AAAAA state champions and where No. 1 prospect Robert Nkemdiche (Loganville, Ga./Grayson) also stars. Kamara made 53 tackles, four interceptions, and two forced fumbles as a junior.

The 5-foot-10, 180-pound defensive back picked Clemson over offers from Illinois, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Wake Forest, and said there were several aspects of the program that made his decision easy.

"I loved the family atmosphere, how the coaches care about you on and off the field, and their focus on making me a better person and football player," Kamara said.
