The 2014 signing class came to a conclusion about a month ago, but there’s no time to slow down. Recruiting is a continuous cycle, and with that we look ahead to Clemson’s 2015 class.

Here’s a look at the guys committed to play for the Tigers so far.

  • Van Smith
  • Mitch Hyatt
  • Tanner Muse
  • J.D. Davis
  • Judah Davis
  • Noah Green
  • Shadell Bell
  • Tucker Isreal

Notes

-Van Smith is a 4-star safety that committed to Clemson last August before the Georgia game. He is ranked by Scout as the No. 21 safety in the nation.

-J.D. and Judah Davis are the twin sons of former Clemson great Jeff Davis. They will enroll next January.

-Shadell Bell offers good size at wide receiver, standing 6’3″ and weighing 200 pounds.

-Mitch Hyatt is rated by Scout as the No. 2 overall offensive tackle and is a 5-star prospect.

 

Outlook

This class has started off well for the Tigers, with eight commits and almost a year to go before signing day. Scout has Clemson as 11th on their team rankings for the 2015 recruiting cycle.

The class offers help where the Tigers need it most: defensive back and offensive line. Adding Tanner Muse is also important because Stephone Anthony and Tony Steward will be gone after next season.

It’s hard to gain perspective of every prospect’s intentions this early in the process, but some names to keep an eye on are George Campbell, Taj Griffin, Albert Huggins, Chris Warren, Lorenzo Nunez, and Shy Tuttle. There are more recruits that Clemson is after, but many prospects still have a large group of schools they are considering.
