5-star Bradenton (FL) IMG linebacker Rahshaun Smith will be at Clemson on Saturday.
5-star Bradenton (FL) IMG linebacker Rahshaun Smith will be at Clemson on Saturday.

History will be made Saturday afternoon as the Clemson Tigers will play in Death Valley for the first time as the No. 1 ranked team in the country, and there will be plenty of recruits on hand.

The first opportunity for the Clemson coaching staff to impress recruits was a rain-soaked thrilling win over Notre Dame in October, but Saturday’s game against Florida State for the Atlantic Division title could have as much or more talent on hand.

Headlining the list of visitors will be 5-star Bradenton (FL) IMG linebacker Rahshaun Smith, the former Clemson commit. Smith, who was supposed to be at the Notre Dame game, but the hurricane-like conditions prevented his travel, will make the trip with fellow linebacker and teammate Jordan Anthony, a 4-star in the 2017 recruiting cycle.
