Clemson 2020 commitment and defensive tackle prospect DeMonte Capehart was ranked No. 39 in Rivals.com's first full 2020 top-100.

Capehart committed to kick off Clemson's camp sessions in early June and is also rated in the top-40 nationally by 247Sports (38). He is the No. 2-rated defensive tackle in the country on both sites (George County, Mississippi's McKinnley Jackson at No. 1).

Outside of the top-10 already released, one of the higher-ranked Clemson targets in the Rivals' new ranking is Woodbridge, Virginia linebacker Antoine Sampah, at No. 12, who received a Clemson offer on a visit in late March.

"Sampah has plenty of room to fill out his frame but the special thing about him is how fast he is in the open field," Rivals.com's Adam Friedman said of Sampah. "His film is littered with bone crushing hits but seeing how big and fast he is really elevated him in the rankings. Sampah has taken plenty of visits and more are coming up for him but are not planned just yet. One school that has done a very good job with him is Clemson, but keep an eye on Ohio State, a school he plans to visit some time next month."

All totaled, nearly 30 of the Rivals top-100 have reported Clemson offers (28), with three offensive linemen targets joining Sampah in the top-20 (Paris Johnson Jr. - 14; Justin Rogers - 16; Kevin Pyne - 19).
