The Clemson football program had a historically great weekend that ended with four top-tier commitments, but that’s just the new norm.
The Clemson football program hosted its Elite Junior Day this past weekend and the early returns are something most probably wouldn’t have dreamt up.
That is, unless they have been following the Clemson football program for the past few years.
The Tigers received commitments from four of their top targets as part of the weekend. Here’s a look at the commitments:
- 4-star WR Beaux Collins
- 4-star TE Jake Briningstool
- 4-star DE Cade Denhoff
- 5-star DE Korey Foreman
Three 4-stars and a 5-star (the No. 1 player in the country, at that) and Clemson is now considered the top 2021 class in the country.
These guys aren’t just star-ratings. These four were among the top of the recruiting boards for not just Clemson, but for many major programs around the country.
Collins, a California native, was heavily recruited by Ohio State. Briningstool is the top tight end in the country and had a whole host of offers. Denhoff has been rising with more than 30 offers, including schools like Auburn, Alabama and Florida.
And then there’s Foreman. Foreman, the No. 1 player in the country, is a California native with offers from basically every major program in the country. Many expected him to stay in-state and, instead, he’s choosing to make the trip across the country to attend Clemson.
But that’s just the new norm in today’s landscape of College Football.
Clemson is on top. The Tigers take who they want, they continue to stack up quality recruits through their culture and then develop them into championship-caliber players.
There was a time where Tiger fans would be ecstatic with a 4-star commit. Now, getting a 4-star or 5-star commit is just the new norm.
