Clemson’s 40-6 win over Oklahoma in the Russell Athletic Bowl didn’t go unnoticed by Clemson’s commits and targets, and TigerNet reached out to several prospects to get their take on the Tigers’ dominating effort.

Clemson has one of the nation’s best recruiting classes for 2015 and will have 16 early enrollees on campus this Sunday. While the bowl game didn’t necessarily change their commitments, the game provides the coaching staff a big talking point for the 2016 and 2017 recruiting classes.
