Clemson hopes to be celebrating in the postseason again

ESPN has released its latest article with an installment of their College Football Future Power Rankings which measures how well each team is set up for sustained success for the next three seasons.

The main factors to determine the rankings were based on current roster, recruiting, the quarterback situation, coaching, team's path to a conference championship and the eventual College Football Playoff.

Clemson was ranked #4th overall in the future rankings behind only Alabama, Ohio State, and Florida State. The Tigers were ranked #4th for offense, #2nd in defense, and #7th overall for their quarterback situation.

"The Tigers won't be waiting another 35 years for their next national title," ESPN said. "It could come in the next three seasons, especially if one of their prized quarterback recruits -- incoming freshman Hunter Johnson or 2018 commit Trevor Lawrence, ESPN's top-rated pocket passer in the class -- pans out. Clemson has become a recruiting behemoth under Dabo Swinney, and no longer only at positions like defensive line and wide receiver, which, by the way, continue to churn out stars."

The Top 25 teams in the future rankings were Alabama, Ohio State, Florida State, Clemson, USC, Michigan, Oklahoma, LSU, Washington, Stanford, Penn State, Wisconsin, Oklahoma State, Georgia, Miami, Auburn, Florida, Texas, Virginia Tech, TCU, Louisville, Oregon, Utah, Texas A&M, and Tennessee.
