Wide Receiver U: Clemson added more star power with 2016 recruiting class

Clemson is known in many circles as Wide Receiver U, a name that will likely stick with the program after the Tigers signed three more big-time receivers in 2016.

Elite defensive end says Clemson "sold itself"

After losing Shaq Lawson and Kevin Dodd to the NFL and signing just one defensive end in 2016, the Clemson coaching staff will look to the 2017 class to continue adding talented depth to its group of defensive ends. Cordele (GA) Crisp County’s Markaviest Bryant is one of the coaching staff’s top targets to fill that void.

Major league baseball teams place a premium on the defensive wizards who make playing shortstop and center field an art form. Why? Because the best teams are stronger up the middle.

Streeter intrigued by Zerrick Cooper's potential

With Nick Schuessler, Kelly Bryant and Tucker Israel already on campus, Streeter has plenty of options, but it’s Clemson’s most recent signee, Zerrick Cooper that intrigues Clemson’s recruiting coordinator the most.
