Clemson’s McCloud among ACC’s best breakout candidates

It’s no secret: Clemson is absolutely stacked to the ceiling with gifted playmakers. Artavis Scott, Mike Williams, Wayne Gallman, Jordan Leggett. That’s not even everyone, but these are the proven veterans who have been a part of multiple double-digit wins teams at the school. However, there’s also a wave of younger pass-catching perimeter threats that will look to take on an even larger role for the Tigers in 2016.

Hunter Renfrow and Deon Cain combined to catch 67 passes for 1,074 yards and 10 touchdowns during their freshmen seasons. That’s pretty darn good production, especially when you consider that’s coming from Clemson’s third and fourth receivers. Cain and Renfrow weren’t alone, though: Ray-Ray McCloud also emerged during his first season in Death Valley.
