National signing day may have just ended, but it's never too soon to start looking ahead to next year's recruiting class.
The Clemson Tigers just signed the 18th-ranked recruiting class in the country, according to 247Sports (subscription required). With major departures on the offensive side of the ball, the Tigers needed a solid infusion of young talent.
While the class of 2014 was good, the class of 2015 could be even better. Clemson is currently ranked as No. 11 in the country by 247Sports with eight verbal commitments.
Mitch Hyatt, a 6'5", 271-pound offensive tackle from Suwanee, Ga., is the nation's top-ranked offensive tackle and a Clemson pledge. The Tigers hope to add several other talented offensive line prospects in next year's class, too.
Head coach Dabo Swinney hopes he found Tajh Boyd's replacement at quarterback with the signing of Deshaun Watson, the top-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the class of 2014. Therefore, the class of 2015 looks to be balanced on both sides of the ball.
Here is an early look at Clemson's top 10 recruiting targets for 2015.
