Clemson’s spring game could see the greatest collection of star power ever in Death Valley.

The Clemson coaching staff will host six 5-star recruits this weekend for the annual Orange and White Game and many of the prospects have the Tigers already at or near the top of their lists.

The No. 1 defensive player in Damascus (MD) defensive lineman Bryan Bresee and the No. 1 offensive player in Bellflower (CA) St. John Bosco quarterback DJ Uiagalelei are both slated to attend.

For Uiagalelei, the spring game will be another event during his five-day stay at Clemson. The California native made the trip with this father, mother, brother and one of his high school coaches and is hoping that his mom sees everything she wants to ahead of a May or June decision.

Bresee was on hand for January’s elite junior day and has held Clemson is high regard since then, although his recruitment will probably still play out for a little while longer.

A pair of 5-star running backs in Demarkcus Bowman out of Lakeland (FL) and Zachary Evans out of Houston (TX) North Shore are expected to be on hand.

Bowman recently visited with his parents and left Clemson with the Tigers alone atop his list, ahead of Florida. Evans has said an offer from Clemson is one he covets, so if the visit materializes his wish could come true.

5-star Jacksonville (FL) Trinity Christian cornerback Fred Davis has been thought to have Clemson as his leader for a while now, and the Tigers could seal the deal this weekend if he decides to end his recruitment.

Antoine Sampah – the Woodbridge (VA) 5-star linebacker – is making his return trip to campus after visiting for Clemson’s elite junior day back in January. Clemson is in Sampah’s top eight along with Florida State, Alabama, North Carolina, West Virginia, Florida, Penn State and Oregon.

One recruit on commitment watch is 4-star Southlake (TX) Carroll safety R.J. Mickens, who will be returning to campus after visiting for junior day last month.
