Dabo Swinney added some more ammo to the Clemson arsenal Wednesday morning by receiving a pledge from athlete Adam Choice out of Thomas County Central High School in Thomasville, Georgia.Blog Photo - Clemson Football: Tigers receive verbal from 4-star RB Adam Choice

Choice held offers from prestigious schools such as Tennessee, Texas and Georgia, but many figured it would come down to either Clemson or Auburn.

A quarterback in high school, Choice is listed as the No. 15 athlete in the country (247Sports Composite) and is a four-star prospect that is expected to play running back at the collegiate level.

And when you watch his highlight tape, you'll understand why.

At 5-foot-9, 200 pounds, he doesn't have the size to play quarterback in college—at least at the Division-1A platform. However, he portrays a lot of strength for his frame when he runs. Choice hands out stiff arms like it's his day job and breaks tackles with ease in his team's wildcat system.

This means big things for offensive coordinator Chad Morris, who is probably foaming at the mouth with the thought of a speedy power back to anchor his high-octane offense that features and thrives off its explosive players.

Choice has back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons as a sophomore and junior, including a 1,600-yard, 19-touchdown campaign on the ground in 2011. These both come at the quarterback position, which is twice as impressive as the stats already indicate.

Not only does Choice possess 4.5 speed, runs low and breaks tackles, but he's an asset in the passing game as well
—making him a perfect fit with the Tigers in Death Valley.

Choice becomes the seventh member of Swinney's 2014 class, which contains five four-star recruits and ranks No. 21 in the 247Sports Team Rankings. Six of the seven commits play on the offensive side of the ball.
