National Signing Day 2014: Grade and Analysis for Clemson

Coming off a season in which they won the school’s first ever BCS bowl, the Clemson Tigers have a lot of rebuilding to do, and they accomplished a good bit of that during Wednesday’s college football National Signing Day for the 2014 season.

According to Rivals, the head coach Dabo Swinney and the Tigers wound up with the 13th-ranked class in the nation, headlined by QB Deshaun Watson, who may be looked upon eventually to fill the shoes of the departing Tajh Boyd.

Here’s a complete look at Clemson’s 2014 class:
