Clemson’s latest verbal commitment for the recruiting 2018 class owns a familiar last name.

D.W. Daniel (Central, S.C.) linebacker Jake Venables, son of Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables, announced Sunday morning via Twitter that he would be playing for his father and the Tigers.

 

The 6-foot-2, 212-pound Jake Venables, who is listed as a 4-star prospect by ESPN and a 3-star by 247 Sports and Rivals, made his intentions known on his dad’s birthday.

“First and foremost, I’d like to thank God for making all of this possible,” Venables wrote on the social media site. “I’d like to also say Happy Birthday to my dad! I want to thank my family and everybody that has encouraged me throughout this entire process.”

Venables also has offers from Northwestern, SMU, Texas Tech and Oklahoma. He recorded 100 tackles and 10 sacks as a junior this season for the Lions.
