Nigerian born Ruke Orhorhoro started playing football last year at River Rouge High School.
It took him one year to be recruited by the nation’s college football powers.
Orhorhoro, a 6-foot-4, 271-pound defensive lineman, committed to Clemson for the class of 2019 on Saturday, choosing the Tigers over Michigan, Indiana and Kentucky. Clemson won the national championship in 2016 and advanced to the College Football Playoff each of the past three years.
