There aren't any actual Clemson Tigers football games until the fall, but that just means recruiting takes center stage for Dabo Swinney and his coaching staff. Clemson is off to a solid start early in the 2018 cycle, as their class of eight commits ranks sixth in the nation. That said, the Tigers are far from done. Here is all the latest Clemson recruiting news and rumors you need to know.
Tigers "out of consideration" for Stephon Wynn
Clemson was one of the early favorites for four-star defensive end Stephon Wynn (Anderson, SC), but that recruitment has cooled off considerably, according to David Hood of TigerNet. Wynn told Hood that he and coach Todd Bates "didn't click" and that Clemson is now "out of consideration."
Wynn named Alabama, Georgia and Ohio State as his favorites. The 6-foot-4, 260-pounder is ranked as the No. 4 defensive end and No. 99 overall prospect in the country, according to 247sports' Composite Rankings.
Clemson offers 4-star OT
The Tigers offered a scholarship to four-star offensive tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere (Tampa, FL) on Friday, according to Anna Hickey of 247sports.
Nicholas Petit-Frere added an offer from Clemson following a visit to his school by Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell last Friday.
The four-star offensive tackle of Tampa (Fla.) Berkeley Prep also owns offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Southern Cal.
The Tigers have held Petit-Frere on their board for months, and Dabo Swinney and Tony Elliott visited his school back in January while in town for the national championship.
The 6-foot-6, 260-pounder is ranked as the No. 5 offensive tackle and No. 55 overall prospect in the country, according to 247sports' Composite Rankings.
2020 RB visits Clemson
Running back Deondre Jackson (Lithonia, GA) figures to be one of the top prospects in the 2020 class, and made an unofficial visit to Clemson on Saturday.
The 6-foot, 195-pounder already has offers from Alabama, Florida, Florida Atlantic, Georgia State and Tennessee.Back to the Clemson Tigers Newsfeed
