Clemson ranked in Top 3 of Early Top 25 for 2016

Fox Sports released its early College Football Top 25 Poll for 2016 on Monday morning and had Clemson ranked #3 overall behind only Alabama and rival Florida State.

"The Tigers were my No. 1 pick in the hours after the national title game, and it's certainly tempting to ride star QB Deshaun Watson and RB Wayne Gallman," Stewart Mandel said. "The offense is unquestionably loaded. But six starters on defense left early, including All-Americans Shaq Lawson, Mackensie Alexander and Jayron Kearse. Between young ends and a rebuilt secondary, the Tigers won't have much margin for error."

The full Top 25 list included Alabama, Florida State, Clemson, LSU, Michigan, TCU, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Stanford, Baylor, Notre Dame, Houston, Michigan State, Washington, Georgia, North Carolina, Washington State, Louisville, USC, Oregon, Florida, Iowa and Texas A&M.
