Clemson WR's ranked #1 in the nation

Fox Sports has released its latest article on Monday that ranked the top college wide receiver groups in the nation and Clemson was ranked #1 overall.

"As terrific as the Tigers' offense was in 2015, imagine how dynamic it would’ve been if they had their best WR Mike Williams, who missed almost all of the season following him injuring his neck in the opener," Fox Sports said. "The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder caught 57 passes for 1,030 yards in 2014 and six TDs, averaging 18 yards per catch. How talented is Williams? Clemson coaches say he’s like a bigger version of DeAndre Hopkins, meaning he has fantastic ball skills. Artavis Scott has averaged 85 catches the past two seasons. The 5-11, 190-pound junior is versatile, reliable and explosive. That’s a pretty rare triple among college wideouts. Those two are as good as any tandem in the college game this year."

Clemson's wide receiver stable is not just limited to Williams and Scott as Deon Cain, Hunter Renfrow, Ray-Ray McCloud, Trevion Thompson, and others are all VERY capable performers this upcoming season.

The Top 10 receiving groups were Clemson, Alabama, Michigan, Oregon, Penn State, Texas A&M, USC, Washington State, Oklahoma State and Ole Miss.

Self-appointed 'WRU' school Tennessee did not make the list.
