Athlon Sports has released its latest article with its Athlon's Pre-Spring Top 25 for 2015 and Clemson is #11 on the list.

It’s a toss up for the title of early favorite in the ACC Atlantic next season. Much like Florida State, Clemson has personnel concerns to address. However, there’s also a lot of talent returning to Death Valley for 2015. Quarterback Deshaun WatsonDeshaun Watson

. The departure of coordinator Chad Morris will have an impact on the offense, but Watson, Scott and Gallman should keep the unit performing at a high level. Bigger question marks exist on defense, as the Tigers were decimated with heavy departures in the front seven. How quickly can coordinator Brent Venables reload in the trenches? (via athlonsports.com)

The Tigers have won 10 or more games in four consecutive years and also finished four years in a row inside the Top 25.

Other ACC schools on the ranked list include Florida State (#10 overall) and Georgia Tech (#15 overall).

Virginia Tech was not included in the Top 25 list but rather as a team to watch.
