ESPN revamped its 2021 recruiting rankings and that has Clemson tied for the most top-300 commits currently.
All nine Clemson pledges are in the ESPN300, tying Ohio State for the most reps in that tier. Clemson has a nation-leading two of ESPN's 11 5-stars committed with Korey Foreman (No. 3 overall; No. 2 DE) and Jeremiah Trotter Jr. (No. 6 overall; No. 1 OLB).
Joining the 5-star duo in the top-100 is Bellflower, California product Beaux Collins (No. 64 overall; No. 7 WR), as well as Jake Briningstool (No. 70 overall; No. 1 TE-Y) and Cade Denhoff (No. 77 overall; No. 10 DE).
About 10 months out from the early signing period, Clemson is one of six teams with at least five ESPN300 products on board, along with Notre Dame (7), Florida (7), Texas (5) and Oregon (5).
