If Clemson's down-the-road offensive line has trouble, it can't be blamed on recruiting.

The Tigers picked their third gem of the 2015 recruiting cycle on Thursday when Jake Fruhmorgen, a 6-4, 295-pound offensive tackle from Plant High in Tampa, Fla. close Clemson over Florida in a ceremony at his high school.

Fruhmorgen, who also had offers from Michigan, Alabama, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Georgia, is a consensus top-10 prospect at his position, and is ranked as high as the nation's No. 4 offensive tackle by 247 Sports. His dad, John, played offensive line at Alabama.

Fruhmorgen joins nationally top-rated offensive tackle Mitch Hyatt of Suwanee, Ga., and The Opening-bound offensive tackle Noah Green of Boiling Springs, S.C.

The Tigers remain in the hunt for several other elite-level offensive linemen.

Fruhmorgen expects to be on hand Saturday for Clemson's Orange-White spring game.
