Clemson's 2018 signee class now has five Tigers rated as five-star prospects by 247Sports.com.

Adjusting its rankings after all-star events, 247Sports.com bumped Lewisville High School (S.C.) defensive tackle Josh Belk up 54 spots to 25th overall as a five-star prospect, and moved South Pointe High School (S.C.) receiver Derion Kendrick up 43 spots to 30th overall as a five-star.

Belk and Kendrick both impressed during U.S. Army All-American practices in San Antonio, Texas earlier this month.

Belk earned All-State honors after totaling 116 tackles, 34 TFL, 11 sacks, seven caused fumbles and a pass breakup as a senior.

Kendrick, a QB at South Pointe, was named the top player in the state by Gatorade and was a finalist for national player of the year after 50 total touchdowns and nearly 4,000 total yards (3,918) in a state championship run.

Trevor Lawrence remained atop the 247Sports rankings, with Xavier Thomas (No. 4) and K.J. Henry (No. 26) rounding out Clemson's 5-star-rated prospects by the site.

Also in their 'Top 247' is offensive tackle Jackson Carman (No. 49), cornerback Kyler McMichael (No. 84), defensive end Justin Mascoll (No. 109) and linebacker Mike Jones Jr. (No. 188).
