This week's opponent is the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Similar to weeks past, we will put Clemson's recruiting numbers next to the Deacons to see how we stack up based solely on data acquired from Rivals.com and Scout.com.
We got some positive feedback on the new layout of the date, so I will continue to use the protocol established in last week's recruiting comparison post.
This week's data is pretty one sided. Clemson leads in all of our metrics that include average player star rating, class size, and overall class ranking. Long and the short of it, Clemson holds a definite talent advantage as you will see from the Scout/Rivals data and should have more depth as Clemson's average class over the past five seasons is larger than Wake Forest's. I am not going to bore you with more of my gibberish, so here is the data:
Table I: Individual Recruiting Source Star Ratings
Figure 2: Class Size per Team
Figure 3: Annual National Recruiting Rankings
