Monte Lee's first recruiting class at Clemson is ranked 23rd by Baseball America

CLEMSON, S.C. - The Tigers' 2015 recruiting class was ranked No. 23 in the nation by Baseball America on Tuesday. The 13 players that comprise the class are already with the team, led by head coach Monte Lee and assistant coaches Bradley LeCroy, Andrew See and Greg Starbuck.

Ten of the 13 played high school baseball a season ago, including 27th-round draft pick Jake Higginbotham, a freshman lefthander from Hoschton, Ga. The Tigers had a top-25 class despite losing two players, including a first-round pick (Cornelius Randolph) and third-round draft selection (Jalen Miller), to the major league draft.

Below is the entire 13-player class:

• Stokes Brownlee - C/INF, Fr., St. George, S.C.
