A no-surprise Wednesday was mostly good news for the Clemson football program, which reloaded with a 22-man signing class that Dabo Swinney described as "the lifeblood of the program."
The Tigers' class includes five early enrollees, 13 players who signed National Letters of Intent, and four more who signed Financial Aid Agreements as 'grayshirts.'
Headlining the class is the nation's top-rated dual-threat quarterback in Deshaun Watson.
Clemson group of signees also includes four wide receivers, three running backs, two defensive linemen, two offensive linemen, six linebackers, two tight ends, one defensive back and a kicker.

Swinney breaks it down
The Tigers picked up one signing day addition in Richard Yeargin III, a defensive end from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. who announced for Clemson on Wednesday over Notre Dame and Texas.
They struck out on Cory Thomas, a defensive tackle from McCalla, Ala. committed to Tennessee who surprised everyone by signing with Mississippi State.
Defensive end Andrew Williams of McDonough, Ga. will announce later this afternoon from among Auburn, Clemson and Georgia. Auburn is considered to be his favorite.
Clemson's class is currently ranked 12th nationally by Rivals, 13th by ESPN, 27th by Scout and 16th in the 247Sports composite rankings.
The Tigers' class is ranked as the ACC's third best behind Florida State and Miami.
It marks the fourth straight year that Clemson's class has been ranked in the top 15 nationally.
