Amazing stat: Over the past four years NC State has recruited 11 more players than #Clemson, but 32 fewer blue chip recruits. Clemson has posted a median recruiting ranking of #7 compared to NCSU at #39. The Wolfpack have landed on 14 blue chippers during this time span.

President Trump specifically called out a few Tigers including Deshaun Watson, Hunter Renfrow, and Ben Boulware.
Clemson will have one fewer cornerback this year as Adrian Baker has announced his intent to transfer after his graduate this May. Unfortunately, this does not open up a scholarship for next year's recruiting class, so it only hinders our depth.
