Under the radar with sky-high potential - just like Grady Jarrett.

Clemson picked up its 15th commitment for its class of 2014 on Friday, when 6-3, 265-pound defensive tackle Jabril Robinson committed to the Tigers during the All In Cookout.

Robinson, a standout performer at North Brunswick High in Leland, N.C. (just outside Wilmington) picked Clemson over offers from East Carolina and Charlotte. He was also being recruited by N.C. State and North Carolina.

He is currently unranked by the various recruiting services, much like current junior and defensive line starter Grady Jarrett three years ago.

As a junior at North Brunswick - a 2-A school that plays in the Waccamaw Conference - Robinson made 70 tackles, 20 of them behind the line of scrimmage, with a dozen sacks and two caused fumbles.

Robinson, who is the first defensive lineman to commit to the Tigers' 2014 class, was recruited by Clemson defensive line coach Dan Brooks.

This guy for a DT needs to put some weight, kind of small for a DT at 265lbs.

These are the kind of guys that can be "diamonds in the rough"! He's probably a kid with pretty good character and very teachable. As far as weight, I'm sure the coaches will take care of that. That's what they get paid to do. Go Tigers!

Happy to see we don't let ESPN do all of our scouting. Could be a great find.
