The Clemson Tigers and head coach Dabo Swinney enjoyed yet another successful campaign in the 2013 college football season, this time capping it off with their first BCS bowl game victory in school history over the Ohio State Buckeyes in the Discover Orange Bowl.

But now, with the losses of Tajh Boyd, Sammy Watking, Martavis Bryant and a few others that contributed to the program’s string of recent success, the recruiting efforts mean the most now more than they have the past few seasons.

According to Rivals, Swinney and the Tigers have the 12th-ranked recruiting class in the nation, with five recruits already having signed their letters of intent.

As of this moment, there really aren’t any indications that the unsigned commitments will be flipping on their decision to head to one of the best programs in the ACC, so all of them should be signed on by Wednesday evening.

Which again, is a good thing considering the rebuilding that Swinney and crew have to do.
