Rivals.com updated its 2020 rankings this week with some notable movement among Clemson targets and commits.
The top-rated Clemson commit checks in as the No. 6 defensive tackle and No. 117 player overall in four-star prospect Demonte Capehart. More Tiger pledges in the new top-250 include DT Tre Williams (No. 171), OLB Kevin Swint (No. 173), ILB Sergio Allen (No. 188), OT Paul Tchio (No. 209) and OT John Williams (No. 229).
A top-four all with Clemson interest stayed the same in No. 1 QB D.J. Uiagalelei, No. 1 RB Zachary Evans, No. 1 OLB Justin Flowe and No. 1 CB Elias Ricks, an LSU commit. The rest of the top-10 also have Clemson offers in No. 1 OT Paris Johnson Jr. (Ohio State commit), No. 1 SDE Bryan Bresee, No. 1 ATH Arik Gilbert, No. 1 WDE Sav’ell Smalls and No. 2 CB Kelee Ringo.
Three big movers in the top-20 now are No. 1 SC prospect and SDE Jordan Burch (19 spots up to No. 13), 5-star RB Demarkcus Bowman (15 spots up to No. 16) and recent Clemson offer and Alabama commit Chris Braswell (up 28 spots to No. 19).
Clemson’s 2020 class is ranked No. 6 in the Rivals team rankings but is tied for best in average rating (3.86; min. 4 commits; tied with Ohio State) with seven commits total. LSU’s 11-man class is rated No. 1 overall.
