While they came up short this year, Clemson is gearing up to make a serious run next season.
Clemson is the favorite to win the 2021 CFP according to MyTopSportsbook.
When you look at where Clemson is compared to other top programs it’s pretty clear they’re a step ahead.
There are quite a few top 10 teams that have major gaps to fill for the 2020-2021 season. LSU pretty much got stripped and sold for parts after losing 9 veteran starters (including Burrow), Joe Brady (OC), and Dave Aranda (DC). Georgia lost their assistant head coach and recruiting guru Sam Pittman, Jake Fromm and D’eandre Swift. Alabama lost Tua… You get the idea.
On the other hand, Clemson is looking stronger than ever heading into 2020-2021. Clemson is returning Heisman favorite QB Trevor Lawrence, WR Justyn Ross and several starters on the defensive line. Not only that but the Tigers currently have the No. 1 2020 recruiting class in the country, per the 247sports Composite rankings.
