By the Numbers: Clemson’s Class of 2019

Fourteen of Clemson’s 27 signees for the 2019 Class rank among the nation top 300 by at least one of the five major recruiting services. The highest ranking for any of the signees is held by cornerback Andrew Booth, Jr., who is ranked eighth in the nation regardless of position by Rivals.com.

Booth and Frank Ladson are ranked in the top 51 in the nation by all five services. Joseph Ngata is ranked in the top 50 in four of the five. Booth is the highest-ranked Clemson signee by ESPN.com (30th) and Tom Lemming (27), and Ladson is the highest-ranked by Prep Stars (22) and 247Sports (33).

“We feel like we got better for sure,” Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said. “For me, it is always exciting when a guy chooses to come to Clemson. These guys have many, many opportunities and when they choose to come and be a part of it, it is always special.”
