Clemson Football Recruiting has been slow the last couple of months, but it is about to pick back up again. The Tigers will be hosting several prospects on campus for official visits this coming weekend.

In addition to hosting all of the players who are already verbally committed to the class, Clemson will also be hosting recruits who haven’t decided and/or announced their future destinations. In some cases, Clemson appears to be the leader for the player while in others the Tigers have ground to make up.

There always tend to be a few surprises coming out of the weekend. We highlighted four players who have been publicly confirmed to be in attendance earlier in the week. Here are four more who have been confirmed.
