Clemson has secured another commitment from one of last weekend’s official visitors.

Rowan Byrne, a four-star offensive lineman from Iona Prep (New Rochelle, N.Y.), announced his verbal pledge to the Tigers on Thursday afternoon.

“The fit and culture at Clemson is second to none,” Byrne told The Clemson Insider. “To be able to compete in a place I fit in so well and compete for championships is amazing.”

Byrne received an offer from Dabo Swinney’s program during his official visit this past weekend.

The 6-foot-6, 300-pound rising senior chose Clemson over several other colleges, including his finalists — Michigan State, Penn State, Texas A&M, Stanford, and Florida State.

Ranked as the nation’s No. 18 offensive guard and the No. 1 overall prospect in New York for the 2025 class by Rivals, Byrne has been in contact with Matt Luke since January. Luke, Clemson’s new offensive line coach, visited Byrne’s school last month before the official visit.

Culture, on field success crucial to OT Rowan Byrne committing to Clemson

“I think he is a great guy,” Byrne told The Clemson Insider recently. “We’ve got a great relationship, and as a coach he is easily one of the best OL coaches in the nation. Great coach and a better man!”

Byrne will now get to be coached by Luke after committing to Clemson, a program he highly regards.

“I think it is a great program, great development, great everything,” he said. “Definitely a top-of-the-line program in all aspects.”

Clemson also received a commitment from Wiregrass Ranch (Tampa, Fla.) four-star cornerback Graceson Littleton on Wednesday.

Littleton and Byrne are now the 12th and 13th commits in the Tigers’ 2025 class.
