Myles Murphy - 5-star DE - Powder Springs, Ga.
Committed since: 5/17/19.
Listed size: 6-5 260.
Brings to Clemson: Murphy was dominant and disruptive to earn his place among the top-10 prospects in the nation and the top-rated prospect out of Georgia. Murphy easily sheds blocks, overpowers blockers and shows the hustle to stick with the play until the whistle blows -- no matter where he is on the field.
Depth chart fit: Defensive end shapes up to be one of the deeper positions for the 2020 Tigers, but with some projected departures to come after that season (Xavier Thomas a likely pro prospect), Murphy probably avoids a redshirt much like Thomas did to prepare for a much bigger role as a sophomore.
