Clemson Tigers Rake in a Solid Recruiting Class

February 6, 2013 5:30 PM ~  
Today is National Signing Day, which is the deadline for high school football players to submit their Letter of Intent, signifying which college they are going to attend and play football for. I'm not really big into recruiting so I haven't followed this closely, but Tigernet has a pretty good wrapup on their site. Here is the tally of all the recruits we got this year:

My favorite in this class is Boulware, the Middle Linebacker. I watched one of those all-star games at the end of the year on ESPN, and he was an animal. He plays football the way a Linebacker is supposed to. Ought to be fun to watch.

Dabo isn't the best coach, but he's a damn good recruiter. When you think about the kids that got bought off late in the game (several 5-star recruits changed their mind at the last minute) this could have been the best class in Clemson history. As it stands, it is pretty solid.
