Clemson WR's ranked #1 in the nation

by - Assoc. Editor -

Athlon Sports has released its latest article on Wednesday that ranked the top college wide receiver groups in the nation and Clemson was ranked #1 overall.

"Deshaun Watson’s deep collection of receivers from last year’s dynamic offense returns nearly intact," Athlon Sports said. "Five of Clemson’s top seven pass catchers are back, and there’s a good mix of speed, size and versatility, starting with All-America candidates in tight end Jordan Leggett and all-around playmaker Artavis Scott. Deon Cain, sure-handed Hunter Renfrow and Ray-Ray McCloud are back as key contributors after each player caught at least 29 passes in 2015. This group will get even deeper with the return of Mike Williams — an All-ACC receiver in 2014 who sustained a season-ending neck injury in the 2015 opener."

The Top 20 receiving groups were Clemson, Alabama, Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Michigan, Oregon, USC, Florida State, Arkansas, North Carolina, Louisville, Washington State, Nebraska, Baylor, Oklahoma State, TCU, Penn State, LSU, West Virginia and Texas Tech.

Self-appointed 'WRU' school Tennessee was ranked a dismal #27 on the list.
