Elite LB heads list of Clemson’s top 3 targets

Although Clemson has only 12 verbal commitments in the class of 2017, all but one of the targets are listed among the top 500 players in the country in the 247Sports composite index. Eight are among the nation’s top 250 prospects in those listings.

Clemson has pledges from two quarterbacks, one running back, two wide receivers, three offensive linemen, two defensive ends and two defensive backs. Linebacker is among the more pressing needs for the Tigers in the 2017 class, but Clemson is still recruiting numerous elite targets across the field.

We take a closer look at three of the Tigers’ top remaining senior prospects.
