Recruit reaction to Clemson's CFP ranking

The third edition of the College Football Playoff rankings were released on Tuesday night, and Clemson remained in the rankings at the No. 4 spot.

The CFP ranking had Alabama at No. 1, followed by Ohio State at No. 2 and Michigan at No. 3.

The Clemson Insider reached out to some of Clemson’s recruits for their reactions to where the Tigers are slotted:

Chase Brice, QB, Loganville, Ga. – Grayson

“I’m glad that we are still in the playoff. I was worried that they were going to let Louisville jump us for some strange reason. But I agree with the ranking. Those are the four best teams in the nation right now. Again, I don’t think Clemson cares what number they’re at as long as it’s 1-4!”

Tee Higgins, WR, Oak Ridge, Tenn. – Oak Ridge

“It’s good, we just gotta win out and play like I know they can.”

Amari Rodgers, WR, Knoxville, Tenn. – Knoxville Catholic

“It’s good to see that we still have a chance to prove that we are the best even though we slipped up last week.”

Baylon Spector, LB, Calhoun, Ga. – Calhoun

“It’s great! We’ve just got to take care of business now.”

Blake Vinson, OL, Citra, Fla. – North Marion

“I’m super pumped! Really excited for all the coaches and players.”

Jordan Williams, DE, Virginia Beach, Va. – Cox

“Amazing. Very fortunate other teams lost for us to be placed there. But we won’t get used to losing from here on out.”

Mike Jones, LB, Bradenton, Fla. – IMG Academy

“I’m just glad we’re in. As long as we’re in the top four I’m happy.”

Jake Venables, LB, Central, S.C. – Daniel

“I think it’s great! Great for the program, those guys deserve to play in the national championship.”
