Cleveland High School's Sterling Johnson put an end to his commitment early.

Johnson announced on Twitter on Tuesday evening that he has verbally committed to Clemson University.

A member of the Class of 2015, Johnson has one more season of high school football left to play. As a junior last fall, Johnson posted 78 tackles, including 44 tackles for a loss and 7.5 sacks. He also forced four fumbles and recovered one fumble.

Standing at 6-foot-5 and 280 pounds, Johnson earned all-conference honors in the Two-Rivers 3-A Conference.

Johnson chose Clemson over Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Miami, N.C. State, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, and West Virginia, among others.

    Hope he does well. I like his choice. Nice to see top picks going somewhere other than schools like OSU, Alabama, ND, etc.
    off topic... What happened to clemsons long snapper, Fajgenbaum. Thought he was a lock for a late round draft pick. His name never came up.
