Clemson begins its bid at returning to the top of college football soon after the roster settles between NFL decisions and the last pieces of the 2018 signing class.

That means the early, early rankings are in full swing and Stewart Mandel, a former Fox Sports and Sports Illustrated college football analyst, is high on the Tigers in 2018.
