ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. --Clemson added its 16th commitment to the Class of 2013 on Friday when Rivals250 Brooklyn (N.Y.) Thomas Jefferson linebacker Ebenezer Ogundeko pledged to the Tigers during the 2013 Under Armour All-America Game.
Ogundeko, the No. 226 overall player in the country, was down to Clemson and his home-state Syracuse Orange but ultimately choose the chance to play for the Tigers over the opportunity to stay close to home.
"The coaches, I just feel comfortable with them," Ogundeko said. "And I'm just ready to go there and compete in the ACC."
The plan is for Ogundeko to enroll early at Clemson and be able to participate in spring practice.
Ogundeko is the seventh player rated as four-star or higher to commit to Clemson and the fifth on the defensive side of the ball.
As a senior, Ogundeko had 74 tackles and 17 sacks. As a junior, he recorded 79 tackles and 11 sacks
