Clemson cleans up, tops the charts for the ACC in the Early Signing Period

To the surprise of no one, Clemson has positioned itself for another monster recruiting class in 2019. When it comes to the ACC, much like the action on the field, no one can really stack up with the Tigers in terms of recruiting rankings.

As the 2018 Early Signing Period opened up on Wednesday (Dec. 19), Clemson added another layer to the sturdy foundation in Death Valley. However, plenty of other ACC programs — like NC State, for instance — did well, too. Let’s take a look at where the class for each ACC team stands. (Note: Stars, national rankings from 247 Sports.)
