The Tigers picked up one of the strongest runners out of Georgia.

The Clemson Tigers landed a huge prospect with the commitment of Thomasville (Ga.) Thomas County Central running back Adam Choice. According to Chris Nee of 247Sports, the 5'9, 196-pound tailback chose Clemson over schools like Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, N.C. State, South Florida, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin. Choice is considered by recruiting services to be a consensus top-20 running back and four-star recruit.

Edit: Conflicting report.

Recruiting analyst Bud Elliott profiled Choice for SB Nation back in March, singling him out for his toughness and physicality when playing running back. He also displays good balance, vision and change of direction, and Elliott points out that he also plays quarterback in a wishbone offense at his high school. With regards to his limitations, he might have trouble breaking out in the open for huge runs and might be close to his physical limits. Regardless, he should be an immediate contender for playing time in Dabo Swinney's offense.
