Clemson and Brad Brownell added a third commitment to its 2018 class Wednesday when Trey Jemison pledged to the Tigers.

“I’m so truly blessed to be a highly recruited athlete and to have been recruited by so many division on schools,” Jemison wrote on social media. “At the conclusion of many nights of prayer, I’ve found peace in my college decision and I will be attending Clemson University to continue my education and playing basketball.”

Jemison is a 6-foot-11 forward who chose the Tigers over the likes of Harvard, Alabama, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss and others. The Birmingham, Ala. native joins a pair of other Clemson commits in fellow three-star recruits John Newman and Hunter Tyson, both of whom hail from North Carolina.

Brownell’s looking to back up his 2017 recruiting class which ranked in the top-50 nationally and eighth in the ACC, according to 247Sports. The Tigers haven’t made the NCAA tournament since Brownell’s first year at the school in 2011.
