3. Jordan Burch, 5-star DE
Jordan Burch is the consensus top player in the state of South Carolina.
It’s always important to keep recruits in-state and to win recruiting battles against your in-state rival. That is something Clemson has done more times than not over the past few years.
Right now, Burch is said to be leaning towards the Tigers, but is still heavily considering the Gamecocks.
He’s the No. 2 DE in the nation and this would be a great pickup for Clemson, right out of South Carolina’s backyard.
