BEAVERTON, Ore. -- Four-star wide receiver Ryan Jenkins (Marrietta, Ga./Lassiter) committed to Clemson on Sunday, choosing the Tigers over Oklahoma State and becoming the 12th commitment in their 2013 recruiting class.

Jenkins' older brother, Martin Jenkins, is a cornerback for Clemson, and the younger sibling admitted the family ties weighed heavily on his mind during the decision process.

"Because my brother is there already I have a great familiarity with the program, the coaches and the players," Ryan Jenkins said. "There is a comfort level there that I don't feel any place else. It was going to be hard to turn Clemson down."
