Former Harding and current Avon Old Farms quarterback Taisun Phommachanh announced Saturday his commitment to play at Clemson University.
Phommachanh, who is considered the country’s No. 1 dual-threat quarterback and No. 88 prospect overall in the Class of 2019 by recruiting site 247 Sports, chose Clemson over offers from several other major programs including Florida, Florida State, Penn State, LSU, Michigan and South Carolina.

“I’ve been dreaming of being able to play college ball since I was a kid, the day has finally arrived [where] I can commit to a school [where] I feel at home,” Phommachanh posted Saturday on Twitter from the Clemson Spring Game. “I believe Clemson University will elevate me Academically and athletic. With that being said, I am 100% committed to the Clemson University.”
The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Phommachanh, 17, is coming off a stellar junior season for Avon Old Farms, where he passed for 2,402 yards, 26 touchdowns and just one interception. The Winged Beavers lost to Choate 48-27 in the New England Class A title game.
Phommachanh spent his first two years of high school at Harding. He started 22 games in 2014 and 2015, throwing for 4,855 yards, 50 touchdowns and only 17 interceptions.
