Clemson built its program on ‘belief’ not just relying on 5-stars

When looking at Clemson’s Football Program today, college football fans know about all Deshaun Watson, Mike Williams, Christian Wilkins, Clelin Ferrell, Dexter Lawrence, Trevor Lawrence, Tee Higgins, Travis Etienne, Justyn Ross, Tajh Boyd, Sammy Watkins, Stephone Anthony, Deandre Hopkins and the list of four- and five-star players that goes on and on.

And though all of those guys helped Clemson get to the top of the mountain, the program was built on something more than having just talented players.

If you notice who is left off that list. Guys like Dwayne Allen, Grady Jarrett, Vic Beasley, Bashaud Breeland, Jordan Leggett, Wayne Gallman, Adam Humphries, Artavis Scott, Kevin Dodd, D.
