A dream come true: Thornton commits to Tigers

Growing up a Clemson fan, it took Ray Thornton a mere 24 hours to commit to the Tigers after receiving the offer he’s been waiting on. The 2019 3-star Phenix City (AL) Central safety talked to Dabo Swinney Thursday evening when Clemson’s head coach personally extended a scholarship and from there, it was a matter of when Thornton would commit.
