Clemson has become one of the top recruiting schools in the nation lately, but the Tigers have shown with the guys on this list that a star rating is merely just a number.
Recruiting rankings are very useful for fans to gauge a prospect's potential, but so many times prospects are ranked lower than what they deserve.
It goes to show how well a player can become once he is around certain coaches, and for these 12 guys, it's been no different.
Note: For Shaq Lawson and Isaiah Battle, their original high school rankings were used. Both became ranked higher after a year of prep school, but the rankings before prep school were used in this article.
