The defending national champions come in at the third spot in the ACC’s top classes.
The 16th overall ranking for Clemson is the lowest for a defending national champion in a long time. That being said, the Tigers low ranking isn’t due to a lack of talent but more of a small class size.
Following Johnson and Higgins, the Tigers have nine, four-star signees, and three, three-star signees.
Clemson’s 2018 recruiting class however is already starting to take shape with five commitments so far including one from the best prospect in the country, quarterback Trevor Lawrence.
