After a comparatively quiet June and July, Clemson is back on the recruiting board. 4-star offensive lineman Dietrick Pennington announced on Wednesday that he will be committing to Clemson via Twitter.
Pennington was considering offers from LSU, Georgia, Auburn and Florida State before picking the Clemson Tigers. He is a 6’5, 326-pound offensive guard from Evangelical Christian High School in Cordova, Tennessee.
According to 247Sports he is the No. 1 player in the state of Tennessee and the No. 9 offensive guard in the nation. Dietrick Pennington makes for Dabo Swinney‘s 15th commitment for the Class of 2021 and the second 4-star in two days to commit to the Tigers.
He is very coordinated and balanced for a 326-pound guy. He plays both ways for Evangelical Christian High School, and is a multi-sport athlete too. With that being said, playing tackle is definitely not out of the question.
He’s joining an already impressive recruiting class that is now 3rd in the nation. The Tigers also are a top the ACC and Dietrick Pennington makes for the third offensive lineman to commit so far. Earlier in the year Clemson lost Korey Foreman and Jordan Hancock’s commitments. Hancock just recently committed to Ohio State less than two weeks ago.
