Clemson is ranked #15th in ESPN's latest 2016 football class rankings that were released on Wednesday morning.

This is a decrease of one spot from Clemson's last ESPN team recruiting ranking at #14.

4-star defensive tackle Nyles Pinckney from Beaufort, S.C. (Whale Branch HS) is the latest Clemson commit. As a junior, Pinckney had 98 tackles, 27 for loss, had nine sacks, blocked three field goals, 10 forced fumbles and eight fumble recoveries.

The Tiger's highest ranking was 7 and the lowest team ranking by ESPN was 18.

However, the Tigers are no slouch on the national recruiting front with their seven ESPN 300 recruits committed out of eleven total commits.

The 11 commits breakdown as eight four-star recruits and three three-star recruits. Wide receiver Cornell PowellCornell Powell
