Clemson continued its recruiting momentum with the pledge of Phenix City (Ala.) four-star edge Tomarrion Parker on Monday.

Parker, the No. 79 overall prospect in the On3 Consensus rankings for the class of 2023, announced his commitment to the Tigers Monday morning.

Parker was once committed to Penn State. He re-opened things back up on Aug. 8. Clemson offered Parker the next day. The Tigers quickly got Parker on campus. He then returned last month for a visit that he said made a big impact on him near the end of his recruitment.

“I feel real good, real confident that they have a big shot to get me,” Parker told On3 Director of Recruiting Chad Simmons following the visit. “This visit definitely put them over the top.”

Tomarrion Parker another elite prospect

Parker joins a loaded class of 2023 along the defensive front for Clemson. He’s the third edge prospect to commit. Clemson also had pledges from four-stars David Ojiegbe and AJ Hoffler.

The trio of Stephiylan Green, Peter Woods and Vic Burley are all ranked in the top 120 of the On300 rankings. Parker is Clemson’s 22nd commit in the class.

Scouting summary: Productive player as a junior for state champion runner-ups in Alabama’s highest classification. The definition of an active player. Totaled 23 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks as a junior. Consistently chases backside and is constantly in pursuit of the football. Polished pass rusher as well that has extremely active hands and understands how to use leverage to his advantage. Registers as a good, but not elite athlete in the combine setting and looks to lack high-end length at the position. One of the highest floors in the class due to being so technically sound and refined as both a run defender and pass rusher.
