Why Clemson’s recruiting class is the best of the bunch

This is the top-ranked 2018 class in the history of the ESPN.com 247Sports Composite, as rated by 247Sports.com, which ranks all 247Sports-ranked players.

Clemson has been a perennial national title contender since 2011.

Clemson is currently No. 1 in the ESPN Composite rankings.

This is a complete rebuild.

And the Tigers are in a very different place now than they were before the season.

The recruiting class has grown in size and quality.

Clemson now has three-fourths of its 2016 class in place, and it has an incredible recruiting class heading into 2019.

This year, the Tigers’ class is No. 2 in the country and ranks No. 4 nationally in overall talent.

It has five scholarship players and 11-plus scholarship players in 2019, according to 247Sports, including seven-star cornerback Alex Eubanks, who was ranked as the No. 8 prospect in the nation by 247 Sports.
