Clemson is ranked #10 in the second edition of ESPN's Way-Too-Early Top 25 Rankings .

This is the post-signing day edition in which Utah, Oklahoma State and Minnesota fell out of the polls and Texas, Missouri and Louisville joined the Top 25.

After losing three starters on the offensive line and its entire defensive front, Clemson's biggest priority in recruiting was rebuilding both of its lines. The Tigers filled those needs in a big, big way. The Tigers were able to land three of the country's top 11 offensive tackles (Mitch Hyatt, Jake Fruhmorgen and Noah Green) and two of the top 15 defensive tackles (Christian Wilkins and Sterling Johnson). They also landed two highly coveted skill players in receiver Deon Cain and tight end Garrett Williams. A lot of eyes will be on Clemson's offense this spring, as it begins to move on without former offensive coordinator Chad Morris, who is now SMU's head coach. Quarterback Deshaun WatsonDeshaun Watson
