Four players committed to Clemson's 2013 football recruiting class are listed among ESPN's final Top 150 nationally, and another two made the Top 300 list.

Clemson ranks second among ACC teams in both categories to Florida State, which has five Top-150 players and 11 in the Top 300.

Named to the Top 150 list were No. 78 Ben Boulware, a middle linebacker from T.L. Hanna High in Anderson, S.C.; No 112 Dorian O'Daniel, a linebacker from Good Counsel High in Olney, Md., No. 123 Tyshon Dye, a running back from Elbert County, Ga., and Ebenezer Ogundeko, a defensive end from Brooklyn N.Y.

Named to the Top 300 list were No. 205 Mike Williams, a wide receiver from Lake Marion, S.C., and No. 262 Scott Pagano, a defensive tackle from Honolulu, Hawaii.

At No. 78 nationally, Boulware - a star performer in both the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas and the Under Armour All-America Bowl - took the top spot among South Carolina high school players. He moved ahead of Goose Creek's Tramel Terry in the final ESPN rankings.

In addition to the Clemson commitments named to the list, five of the Tigers' remaining recruiting targets made the Top 300 list. They include No. 2 Carl Lawson (DE), No. 4 Mackensie Alexander (CB), No. 13 Montravius Adams (DT), No. 125 Tyrone Crowder (OL), and No. 200 Adrian Baker (DB).

Following Florida State and Clemson on the ACC list were North Carolina, with five Top 300 players; Virginia Tech and Miami, with four each; Louisville, with two; and Virginia and N.C. State with one apiece.
