Clemson’s recruiting class ranks among tops in nation

Clemson once again turned in a nationally ranked recruiting class on Wednesday, signing 20 players that have put the Tigers in the top 10 of most recruiting rankings.

The Tigers also did particularly well in the state of South Carolina, with 12 of their 20 signees hailing from the Palmetto State. Clemson failed to sign a player from Georgia for the first time in recent memory.

The Tigers signed a notable quarterback from out of the region in Chip Kelly, the son of former Buffalo Bills QB Jim Kelly, who may be the heir apparent to rising senior QB Tajh Boy.

Several players were early signees who enrolled last month and will be eligible to participate in spring drills.

Here is a list of the 20 players who signed with Clemson:
