Clemson finishes strong

Clemson wrapped up its 23-player recruiting class with letters from running back D.J. Howard and linebacker Justin Parker, who has the potential to contribute immediately. Coach Dabo Swinney told me he had no doubt both of those players would sign today, but he's "glad they came through." The Tigers, who signed two players from the ESPNU 150, currently have the No. 17 class in the country. Clemson missed on Keenan Allen, who announced today he'd sign with Cal, but it's still a good class for Swinney's first full recruiting year as head coach.
