Clemson ranked in ESPN's Way-Too-Early 2017 Top 25

Clemson is ranked #6 in ESPN's Way-Too-Early Top 25 Rankings after signing day. The Tigers dropped one spot (#5 in last Way-Too-Early Top 25) behind only Alabama, Florida State, USC, Ohio State, and Penn State.

"After losing a boatload of offensive playmakers to the NFL draft, including quarterback Watson, tailback Gallman and receivers Scott and Williams, the defending national champions had some work to do on the recruiting trail," ESPN said. "Coach Dabo Swinney and his staff responded with a third straight top-10 class, which includes No. 1 pocket passer Hunter Johnson, No. 2 wide receiver Tee Higgins and No. 12 receiver Amari Rodgers. The Tigers also lost two respected defensive line coaches; tackles coach Dan Brooks retired and ends coach Marion Hobby left for the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars. Swinney hired Jacksonville State's Todd Bates to coach the defensive line, and former Georgia high school coach Mickey Conn was hired as safeties coach."

The full ESPN Top 25 rankings were Alabama, Florida State, USC, Ohio State, Penn State, Clemson, Washington, Oklahoma, LSU, Oklahoma State, Auburn, Wisconsin, Georgia, Michigan, Stanford, Miami, Kansas State, Louisville, Colorado, USF, Washington State, West Virginia, Texas, Boise State, and Virginia Tech.

Clemson will start their 2017 regular season against Kent State on Saturday, September 2 at home.
