CLEMSON, S.C.—Dabo Swinney and Clemson didn't have the most action-filled national signing day, but it was productive nonetheless.
The Tigers signed 20 recruits, inking a 2014 signing class that ranks 17th nationally, according to 247Sports.
"A group of young men stood up and chose to be a part of our program," Swinney said. "It's exciting they've all chosen to be a Clemson Tiger. We definitely got better today. They're excellent players and excellent people."
Clemson filled many needs and got a cherry on top with the signing-day commitment of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., defensive end Richard Yeargin III.
Much of Clemson's work was done in advance, with only a handful of commitments coming in the homestretch. In fact, the top signee, quarterback DeShaun Watson, committed to the Tigers two years ago and is already enrolled.
"We had no drama. I love no drama," Swinney said. The kind of day I want to have. I love when we have a group of guys who know what they want to do."
However, a lack of late drama doesn't make the class any less impressive. Here is a look at Clemson's 2014 recruiting haul.
