(Greenville-AP) January 16, 2007 - Clemson running back CJ Spiller says he's committed to staying with the Tigers, despite the pull of his young daughter in Florida that had him thinking about transferring.

Spiller has arranged his classes so he can take more trips home to Lake Butler, Florida, and visit his nine-month-old daughter.

Over the holidays, being so far away from his daughter had Spiller thinking about transferring to the national champion Florida Gators.

But Spiller says when he returned to campus earlier this month, he made up his mind to stay with the Tigers.

Spiller says his relationship with Clemson runner James Davis helped keep him in the Upstate.
