After the game, The Clemson Insider reached out to a number of Clemson’s commitments and some other recruits for their reactions to the Tigers’ rout over Wake Forest. Check out what they had to say!

Clemson commit LaVonta Bentley, 2019 LB, Birmingham (Ala.) Jackson-Olin: “It was amazing, and great job to the O-line for opening the holes up for the running backs. Also great job from the defense.”

Clemson commit Bryton Constantin, 2019 LB, Baton Rouge (La.) University Lab: “Clemson is one of the most dominant teams in the nation when everyone is healthy. Their defense is clearly over-powerful and it is hard to run the ball on them and throw it. When they come together as a brotherhood and everyone is healthy it’s a scary sight.”

Clemson commit Sheridan Jones, 2019 CB, Norfolk (Va.) Maury: “Domination.”

Clemson commit Frank Ladson, 2019 WR, Miami (Fla.) South Dade: “They dominated.”
