Suddenly, the Tigers are rich in running backs.

Just days after C.J. Fuller of Easley, S.C. joined fellow Pickens County star Jae'lon Oglesby of Daniel High as a Clemson commitment, Thomasville, Ga.'s Adam Choice announced for the Tigers over offers from Auburn, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Stanford and Texas.

The 5-9, 205-pound Choice is the cousin of former Georgia Tech star and current Buffalo Bills running back Tashard Choice.

Choice made his choice after visiting Clemson earlier this spring, a visit during which he was impressed by the Tigers facilities, support system and family atmosphere.

Recruited by Danny Pearman, Choice rushed for more than 1,600 yards and 23 touchdowns as a junior option quarterback at Thomas Central High, which last sent defensive tackle Brandon Thompson to Clemson.

Choice, a unanimous pick as a four-star running back, is rated as high as No. 8 in the nation at his position by Rivals. He is the seventh player to commit to Clemson's 2014 class, joining Fuller, Oglesby, offensive lineman Taylor Hearn, tight ends Milan Richard and Cannon Smith, and the nation's top-rated quarterback, Deshaun Watson.

Clemson is expected to take about 15 players in its 2014 class.
