The stars will come out as the lights shine brightly on Death Valley Saturday night.

The Clemson coaching staff will host most, if not all of the 2018 commits, along with top prospects in the next three recruiting cycles with the Tigers take on Auburn this weekend.

With all of the current pledges in attendance, it couldn’t be a better time for 5-star defensive end K.J. Henry and 5-star wide receiver Justyn Ross to take in the game. This will be the first time Ross has seen a game in Death Valley.

In addition to the two 5-stars, 4-star Alabama running back Harold Joiner, 4-star IMG cornerback Braden Radley-Hines and 3-star Dorman offensive lineman Jordan McFadden will also be in attendance.

Clemson stands to make the biggest impression with the 2019 class. Quarterback Bo Nix will make his return trip to Clemson. Offensive lineman Keiondre Jones will make his long awaited return. Milton (GA) teammates and defensive backs Andrew Booth and Joseph Charleston will also be one hand. This will be Booth’s second consecutive weekend spent in Clemson.

5-star Georgia wide receiver Jadon Haselwood and 4-star defensive end Travon Walker round out an impressive list of junior prospects.

Saturday’s atmosphere and game will not only be huge for Clemson Football, but Brad Brownell and the men’s basketball staff are also hosting one of the nation’s top recruits for 2018.

Justyn Ross (L) and Trevor Lawrence are expected to attend

Spartanburg (SC) Day’s Zion Williamson has elected to take an unofficial visit to Clemson Saturday and will also attend the game.
