Clemson added another 2014 commitment on Saturday when Daniel running back Jae'lon Oglesby told Dabo Swinney he was ready to hop on board.

Between practices during Saturday's camp, the Daniel High School rising junior committed to Clemson.

"It's my hometown. When I was little, I played little league, I played for the Clemson Tigers. It's always been my dream to play for Clemson," Oglesby told CUTigers on Saturday.

"I grew up watching C.J. Spiller and Jacoby Ford. I always wanted to play there."

Oglesby committed while meeting with Swinney in his office.

"He asked me if I wanted to come play football for Clemson, and he asked me if I was all in. I said yes," Oglesby said.

The run of Daniel players at Clemson continues. For the fifth-straight cycle, the Tigers have picked up a commitment from the local high school.

"It means a lot. Everyone that came out of Daniel, they want to represent their city and play for a big school like Clemson," Oglesby said. "I want to do the same thing."

As a sophomore, Oglesby rushed 221 times for 1,731 yards and 25 touchdowns. He caught nine passes for 97 yards and a score and returned three kickoffs for 105 yards.
