The Clemson baseball program has a pair of new additions - one a junior college pitcher who will complete the Tigers' 2012 recruiting class when classes begin this week, and the other a highly regarded outfielder who will be part of the Tigers' 2014 class.

Joining the Tigers for the 2012 season is Kyle Schnell, a righthanded pitcher from Lake Sumter Community College in Leesburg, Fla. In his one season at Lake Sumter, Schnell posted a 4-1 record and had four saves.

Schnell is originally from Milton High in Alpharetta, Ga.

He has three years of college eligibility remaining.

Also from the talent-rich Atlanta area is 2014 commitment Michael Chavis, a 5-11, 185-pound outfielder from Sprayberry High in Marietta.

Chavis, who plays for East Cobb's 16U and 17U travel teams, picked Clemson over Georgia Tech and Georgia.

He batted .400 and hit a pair of homers at the Perfect Game World Series this summer, and was named to the event's Louisville Slugger Prime Nine for the event.

He is the fourth player to commit to Clemson's 2014 baseball class, joining Katon Harwood, a righthanded pitcher from Asheville, N.C.; Charlie Barnes, a lefthanded pitcher from Sumter, S.C.; and Adam Renwick, an infielder from Dorman High in Roebuck, S.C.

Clemson also has 10 players committed for its class of 2013, which will sign in November.
