Four-star LB Jamal Anderson commits to Clemson.

Four-star linebacker Jamal Anderson of Hoschton (GA) Mill Creek High announced his commitment to Clemson Monday afternoon.

The 6-foot-3, 195 pounder chose the Tigers over Utah, Michigan State, Penn State, and Florida.

Jamal Anderson on why he chose Clemson

“First off I would say my relationship I have with the coaches and how they truly make it feel like home,” Anderson said. “Coach Swinney is a great head coach and an even greater person. Coach Goodwin, along with other coaches on the staff, have shown to have great development. Their program to help develop you as a man and set you up for life after football is also amazing and something I want to be a part of.”

“Then, obviously you want to win and that’s exactly what Clemson does year after year and I’m excited to be a part of the culture. Also I think I have a chance at playing early if I really go in and out with lots of effort and hard work. Along with that, this class we are about to sign is going to be great and I’m confident we can win a national championship!”

Culture at Clemson stands out to Anderson

“It was a great visit,” Anderson said. “Got to see a lot and talk to many people. What really stood out is the love you feel at clemson , it can’t be fabricated. I asked many players how they liked it so far at Clemson and is it truly how they show the program and all the players had nothing but great things to say about the program and that’s rare. The culture at Clemson is next level and you can’t match it , coach Swinney has really built something great and I’m excited to be a part of it.”

Jamal Anderson Scouting Summary

“Fluid, coordinated athlete who is among the better cover linebackers in the 2023 cycle,” On3’s Director of Scouting Charles Power wrote. “Checks in around 6-foot-3, 195 pounds. Excels as a space defender. A natural mover with range. Reads routes, diagnoses quickly and makes plays on the ball. Can run with and cover slot wide receivers downfield.”

“A quick processor who sees the game quickly in space. Finished his junior season with 78 tackles, 7 tackles for loss, 4 sacks and 2 interceptions as a junior, facing high-level competition in Georgia. The son of former All-Pro running back Jamal Anderson. Will need to fill out and continue adding mass and strength to better hold up against the run at the next level.”

He ranks as the No. 174 player in the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally-weighted industry generated average that accounts for all four major recruiting services. The 2023 prospect also tabs in at the No. 12 linebacker and the No. 16 player in the state of Georgia.
