Demarre Kitt, a 4-star wide receiver, wants to break records at the college level, and he wants to do so at Clemson with Tigers' quarterback commitment Deshaun Watson

Kitt, the No. 7 player from the state of Georgia, according to the 247Sports Composite, took to Twitter to announce his commitment to Clemson:

This is a huge commitment for Dabo Swinney and his staff, as Kitt is one of the more notable receivers in the 2014 class. He's ranked No. 11 at the position by the 247Sports Composite, and he has the potential to be a marquee wideout at the college level.

Kitt checks in at 6'1'', 182 pounds, and he runs a 4.53 40.

Considering his height and speed, Kitt will be a deep threat. He can break a defensive back's cushion and has a variety of moves that help him get open. He runs crisp routes, has quick feet and has the speed to create separation.

He can beat a defender vertically, but Kitt could also move into the slot and be a mismatch because of his footwork and quickness.

When he gets the ball in his hands, he's elusive, displays good vision and has the ability to change direction quickly, so he projects to be a good yards-after-the-catch target.

Kitt's length also allows him to go up and high-point the ball, which, combined with his speed, will make him an effective receiver.

That speed and quickness also make Kitt a great punt returner, so that could be an interesting option for him early in his college career. 

With the addition of Kitt, Clemson's 2014 class now features nine commitments. The Tigers are on some somewhat of a streak, as Kitt is the second commitment in two days. ESPN's Kipp Adams reported that Korie Rogers, 4-star inside linebacker, committed on Wednesday.

Kitt is a former Georgia commitment, and he chose Clemson over Ohio State and Tennessee.
