Justyn Ross, the third-year Clemson football wide receiver will have a big year for the Tigers.

Yes, he is having surgery in a few days after sustaining what was called a “neck stinger” during the Tigers abbreviated spring practice, but no one around the program seems worried.

There is no doubt that Ross is the most talented receiver in the country, he just has to decide to be consistent in 2020 and if he does that, he will run away with the Biletnikoff Award, which is awarded to the nation’s best receiver.

We published an over/under piece on Ross last week and we expect him to have more than 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns for an undefeated Clemson team.

The 2020 Clemson football receiver group will be among the best in the nation with Frank Ladson Jr. Joseph Ngata and Amari Rodgers joining Justyn Ross. Seniors Cornell Powell and Will Swinney round out the group will help provide leadership to some of the elite young talents joining them.
