Sometimes it's good to be first.

Sometimes it's good to have connections.

Sometimes a school uses a combination of both to snare a high-potential, under-the-radar commitment.

Such was the case on Monday when Maverick Morris, a 6-5, 290-pound offensive lineman from Coffee County High in Douglas, Ga. committed to Clemson.

Morris became the 10th player committed to Clemson's 2013 recruiting class, its third offensive player, and its first offensive lineman.

The 16-year-old Morris picked up his first college offer last week after working out at Dabo Swinney's high school camp.

He was recruited by Danny Pearman, and has a Clemson connection in that he's coached by Buddy Nobles, the father of former Tiger tight end Kasey Nobles and the high school coach of C.J. Spiller at Lake Butler, Fla.

Morris, who was also being tracked by Florida State and Georgia, is currently unranked by the major recruiting websites.

Good size for a rising senior in high school. Bet he'll be 6'6 305 when he gets here.

I know that a dollar and my good feelings will buy you a cup of coffee, but I have good feelings about this kid! He's a beast at 16! Go Tigers!
