The Tigers currently rank fourth nationally in the ESPN.com recruiting rankings and No. 19 nationally in 247Sports.com’s composite rankings.

The 2019 recruiting class will feature six players ranked in the top 15 of 247Sports’ Composite Top 25 (No. 22 to 29).

It also includes a handful of underclassmen and juniors.

Five of the top 10 recruits in the 2019 class will be freshmen, including defensive tackle Deon C. Cooper, cornerback Demetrious Davis, defensive tackle Koa Trangah, safety Nick Stover and wide receiver Jake Davis.

Four of the players on the list are returning for the 2019 season, including linebacker D.J. Humphries and wide receivers Deon Johnson, Josh Davis and Devin Davis.

Five Clemson football players have already enrolled in 2019: quarterback Tyrod Taylor, defensive end Da’Quan Bowers, linebacker Mike Davis, linebacker Tyler Davis and defensive tackle Marques King.

The recruiting class also includes three players with dual eligibility: cornerback Trevon Williams, defensive back Chris Conley and safety Jourdan Lewis.

The Tigers also have three players who are transferable from other programs.
