BorderWars Team Recruiting Rankings!

After months of keeping quiet, some of the top names in the south are now publicly announcing their verbal commitments to Clemson University. With the addition of Maurice Nelson, the Tigers have moved ahead of South Carolina in the team recruiting rankings in the southeast!

A key for the table headings is below. Re-signs from the previous class were not factored into the rankings, but JuCos were. The total rank is a subjective opinion based on player knowledge and the player rankings by TheInsiders.com. JuCos are counted equally in the objective data below, but are not weighed quite as heavily in the subjective data. Meaning a team will get more credit for a 4 star prep player with 4 years of eligibility than a 4 star JuCo player with 2 years of eligibility remaining.
