Ahead of National Signing Day on Feb. 7, ESPN released its post-all-star game rankings Thursday.

Clemson ranks fifth in their team rankings thanks to signees in three of the site’s top-6 prospects in quarterback Trevor Lawrence (2) defensive ends Xavier Thomas (4) and K.J. Henry (6).

ESPN only rates 13 prospects as five-stars overall, but offensive tackle signee Jackson Carman checks in at No. 21 overall.

Receiver signee Derion Kendrick and defensive back signee Kyler McMichael used an impressive week at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl to make double-digit moves in the rankings.

Kendrick jumped 18 spots (62) and McMichael moved up 23 places (90), with defensive tackle Josh Belk (96) and defensive end Justin Mascoll (102) rounding out eight Clemson signees in ESPN’s top-102 prospects.

Also in the ESPN 300 are running back signee Lyn-J Dixon (171) and linebacker signee Mike Jones Jr. (208).

Defensive tackle signee Darnell Jefferies is also rated a four-star prospect by ESPN as the No. 23 defensive tackle.
