The Clemson Tigers have been in a bit of a holding pattern with their 2014 recruiting class over the past few months, but recently shook things up a bit with the addition of four-star receiver Trevion Thompson. 

The 6-3, 185 pound player from Durham (N.C.) Hillside committed to Dabo Swinney's program after taking his official visit to the school over the weekend. Both Rivals.com and Scout.com list Thompson as a four-star talent, and Scout has Thompson as the No. 15 wide receiver in the country.

Rivals isn't quite as generous with Thompson, pegging him as the 16th receiver in the nation and the No. 8 overall prospect in the state of North Carolina. Thompson is the 19th player in Clemson's 2014 recruiting class.

With Thompson's commitment, the Tigers will be heading into next season with a talented group of young wide outs. Thompson joins fellow four-star prospects Demarre Kitt and Artavis Scott, as well as three-star receiver Kyrin Priester. Kitt, Scott and Priester have each signed letters of intent and have already enrolled at the university.

As the No. 15 receiver in the country, Thompson was being recruited by many other top programs. He chose the Tigers over schools like Alabama, Florida, Notre Dame, Ohio State, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, West Virginia and more.

During his senior season with Hillside, Thompson hauled in 57 catches for 987 yards and 14 touchdowns. If you want to check out some of Thompson's game play, be sure to watch the video of his senior highlights below:
