You can't get 'em all.
But don't tell that to Clemson's football coaching staff - not with the recruiting roll that they're on.
With Dabo Swinney's high school camp next week providing a traditionally rich recruiting opportunity, the Tigers have a chance to add yet another high-profile player in the run-up when four-star Virginia defensive end Clelin Ferrell announces his college choice this afternoon.
Clemson is considered to be among the front-runners, and perhaps even the favorite, to land the 6-5, 225-pound Ferrell, who stars at Benedictine High in Richmond. Others strongly in the running include Virginia Tech and South Carolina, while his offers range far and wide and include LSU, Michigan, Michigan State, Florida State, Nebraska, Penn State, Florida, Ohio State and Virginia, among others.
Ferrell is ranked as the nation's No. 6 weakside defensive end by Rivals, which rates him as the No. 77 player in the nation overall. He's ranked 11th among defensive ends and 101st nationally by ESPN and No. 21 at his position and No. 151 overall by Scout.
