With 2015 almost done, the Tigers may as well get started on 2016.

Clemson took the first step in that direction on Wednesday, when tight end J.C. Chalk - the grandson of former Alabama coach Gene Stallings - committed to the Tigers before departing the first session of Dabo Swinney's camp.

The 6-4, 215-pound Chalk, from Argyle, Texas, also had early offers from Arizona State, Duke and Colorado State.

He was recruited by Chad Morris. Swinney played for Stallings at Alabama.

Chalk made the switch from wide receiver to tight end last season, and, filling in for an injured teammate, had four catches for 63 yards in six playoff games during Argyle's run to the Texas 3-A Division II championship.

He received his offer from Clemson in late April.

“I was pretty excited,” Chalk told the Denton Record-Chronicle. “I wasn’t really expecting it. I went to their camp my freshmen year, and they kind of said they were interested in me but I wasn’t expecting much.”
