All of the worry that came with NIL and how it would affect Clemson football’s recruiting capabilities have all seemingly faded as the Tigers have put together one of the top 2023 recruiting classes in the country so far.

During Swinney’s tenure with Clemson, the team has consistently brought in some of the best talents across the country. While the bulk of talent Swinney and the Tigers recruit varies yearly, the players they find ways to bring into the program keeps the team competing at a high level.

Looking at the current 2023 class the Tigers have put together so far, Clemson’s class is looking like it could be special. But where do they rank among the top classes in the country right now?

According to 247Sports, Clemson’s 2023 class currently ranks as a top ten class in the country, and there is surely room to grow from here.

Here is where Clemson ranks among the top 25 recruiting classes in the country right now, according to 247Sports composite rankings:
