SAN ANTONIO - Minneapolis (Minn.) Breck wide receiver Bryce McNeal arrived in San Antonio this week with four schools on his list of finalists.
However, the 6-foot-2, 170-pounder narrowed it down to two before making his announcement on national television at the U.S. Army All American Bowl.
McNeal will play at Clemson for new head coach Dabo Swinney.
"I chose Clemson because coach Dabo Swinney who recruited me my junior year will be the head coach, which he is, and I basically will have a home away from home with all my family in Atlanta," McNeal said following his live announcement at the game.
McNeal chose the Tigers over Oregon, Minnesota and Colorado in the end. He also took an official visit to Oklahoma but eliminated the Sooners earlier this week. Hinting at his destination on Sunday and Monday, McNeal said he would be the only player from his home state that has ever signed with his choice.
McNeal is rated at the No. 1 prospect in Minnesota and the nation's No. 14 wide receiver prospect by Rivals.com. He checks in at No. 90 in the 2009 Rivals100.
