ESPN doesn't include Clemson in Top 10 of 'WRU' schools


by - Assoc. Editor -

ESPN released its latest Top 10 'WRU' schools in the BCS and CFP era and surprisingly Clemson was not included.

The top 10 'WRU' schools were in order: USC, Ohio State, Florida State, Oklahoma State, LSU, Oklahoma, Florida, Michigan, Alabama, and Notre Dame.

These schools all have a decent tradition of putting receivers in the league. However, not to include Clemson in the rankings at all is certainly silly.

In contrast, Sports Illustrated picked Clemson as 'WRU' in early April based on their formula including NFL draft position, NFL games started, and NFL awards.

Clemson has 11 current NFL WR alums and DeAndre Hopkins has been a regular in the All-Pro teams.
