2. Can the Tigers hold on to the No. 1 spot?

Speaking of the rankings, can Clemson football hold onto that No. 1 spot?

The Tigers were No. 2 behind Alabama before they picked up a commitment from 4-star LB Trenton Simpson this past weekend.

It seems the Tigers could finish anywhere between No. 1 and No. 3 when the 2020 recruiting cycle officially comes to a close.

5-star DE Jordan Burch could play a huge role in terms of the rankings if he commits to LSU or Alabama over Clemson. Georgia could also vault up and compete if the Bulldogs pick up his commitment.

Rankings truly don’t matter and Clemson is recruiting to its needs, not to a recruiting service’s thoughts, but it still would be a nice feather in the cap for the Tigers to finish with the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation.
