Clemson football is back at 20 recruits after a week at 19.
When we last left you offensive line commitment Zechariah Owens had decommitted, but Owens apparently reconsidered and is back in the good graces of the Clemson staff.
There had been some debate back in the late summer and early fall as to whether the Tigers would take three or four offensive linemen this cycle and this latest development opens the path to four.
The offer to Spencer Fano is still out there, too, so at least theoretically the Tigers could end up with four offensive lineman in the 2023 class.
Fano has big-time offers from out west and he’s certainly not a sure thing to Clemson, but if the Tigers could pull Fano with Owens back in the fold, that would be a crazy result considering where they were immediately after Owens decommitment.
As fans of Clemson, we don’t always understand, or accept, when a recruit decommits or understand all of the reasons that may have happened. I’m not always successful, but I try to understand both sides.
We may never understand the reasons for the back and forth and that’s alright. If Dabo and staff is good with it, then I trust them to make the right decision.
Clemson football will host a big-time 2024 quarterback this weekend
As for this weekend, 2024 QB DJ Lagway is expected to visit for the Syracuse game on Saturday.
Lagway and Jadyn Davis are the only two quarterbacks the Tigers have offered in the 2024 recruiting class.
Lagway, of Willis, Texas, is the fourth-ranked quarterback in the class, right behind Davis.
Ranked as the 26th-best player overall, Lagaway is nine spots below Davis, who comes in at number 17.
In other news, class of 2024 in-state offensive lineman Blake Franks listed his top 8 and the Tigers were included.
Blake is currently listed as a 3-star and just outside of a top 400 player in the nation, but with offers from Clemson, Alabama, Florida, Florida State and Penn State among others, I would look for that to change in the coming rankings.
