#BREAKING: Elite 5-star defensive lineman picks Clemson

April 23, 2019

Clemson's 2020 class just added one of the best defensive linemen in America as 5-star Bryan Bresee‍ made his college choice moments ago.

The Damascus, Maryland prospect had been considered a Clemson lean for several months and his addition gives Clemson another top-level prospect in what could become the best-rated class in Tiger history.

Bresee (6’5, 290), who made a few trips to Tiger Town this past year, possesses an incredible skill set for his size. He doesn’t come across as the most vocal prospect, but from what we understand he stays in touch with many of Clemson’s other commits and potential targets-- which is a big deal.

Bresee stated, “I’m happy to announce that I will be continuing my academic and athletic career at Clemson University,” revealing a Clemson t-shirt.

He went on to thank Coach (Todd) Bates, Dabo Swinney, and Brent Venables for their support noting, “This has truly been a blessing. I’m all in.”

Bresee becomes Clemson’s 12th commitment in the 2020 class and the second 5-star prospect on the defensive side of the ball.

While the Tigers are still pursuing high-value offensive targets like D.J. Uiagalelei‍, Demarkcus Bowman‍, and Julian Fleming‍, the defensive star Bresee could end up being the gem of this class. Brent Venables’ defense starts up front and the disruptive nature of that position group has been a large part of Clemson’s recent success. There is no doubt that the Damascus High product gives the Tigers that type of skillset. 

Director of Scouting for 247 Barton Simmons noted, "I think Bryan Bresee is a great fit and a great representative of what Clemson has tried to built there on the defensive front. This could just be the beginning for the Clemson recruiting class."

We'll have more on Bresee's commitment later for our Premium subscribers.
