After another down-to-the-wire victory on Saturday night in Doak Campbell Stadium, Clemson impressed the nation, finally picking up just its second win at Florida State in Tallahassee since 1989, and the first since 2006.
With three wins against teams currently ranked in the top 20, the No. 3 Tigers keep finding ways to win all the while impressing recruits around the country.
This coming Saturday Syracuse comes to Death Valley, as well as a handful of top recruits. As the final weeks of the season approaches, so does recruiting crunch time.
Which recruits helped their teams in crunch time this week?
Wide receiver commit Tee Higgins hauled in six passes for 55 yards and a touchdown for Oak Ridge (Tenn.) in a 28-0 shutout win over Campbell County on Friday night. If you have read any of our past articles, you know that this is the norm for Higgins, and Clemson fans are counting down the days until he suits up in the orange and regalia.
Baylon Spector had 121 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns playing quarterback for Calhoun (Ga.) in a 46-21 win over Bremen. Coming in at 6-foot-2, 220 pounds, Spector won’t factor into the linebacker rotation immediately, but he could be a valuable asset further down the road because of his athleticism as he learns the playbook and bulks up once he arrives in Death Valley.
Cornerback A.J. Terrell showed off more of his two-way playing ability, catching a 19-yard touchdown pass, putting Westlake (Ga.) on the board in an eventual 35-31 win over Wheeler. Like Spector, Terrell could find a way to play both ways, but his upside in the secondary, attributed to his length and speed, will make him a reliable asset on defense for the Tigers.
